Why Data Engineering?

Learn one of the most in demand skills out there

Four megatrends are fundamentally changing the shape of our world:

  • Vast amounts of data are being generated every minute.
  • The processing speed of our machines is increasing exponentially.
  • We now have cloud providers who can store insane amounts of data for a few dollars.
  • Powerful open source algorithms that can read, write, translate and see are now available to everyone.
 

Data Engineering is the skillset used to harness the power of these tectonic shifts in our world. Over the last 4 years, the rise of job opportunities for data engineers has become almost level to those traditionally seen for software engineering positions.
