Data Engineer Career Path Change Log

Check out what’s new in the Data Engineer Career Path 📝

October 11, 2022 - Launching the Career Path into the Beta Catalog!

We are super excited to announce the launch of our first Data Engineer Career Path to Beta!

Q: What is a Data Engineer? A: Data Engineers make data usable. They build and monitor data pipelines, automate cleaning tasks, ensure data validity, manage ingestion, and are at the center of any data-driven organization.

Q: What is in this Career Path? A: This path starts from the very basics so you don’t need to know anything to start. We’ll give you everything you need to know to apply for an entry-level job in data engineering: from languages like Python, SQL, and PySpark to tools like GitHub, the Command Line, and Digital Ocean alongside essential skills like working with big data, cloud-based hosting, and data wrangling. You’ll build a portfolio along the way to showcase your work to future employers.

Q: Why Beta? A: We aren’t quite done putting the finishing touches on this career path. Some content isn’t available yet, but we want to give you a chance to get a head start before we invite the world to check it out.

Curious to learn more? Come back here after October 11th for a link to check it out. Also keep an eye on your notification bells. We will be sending an alert to learners who have taken related content.
