First post here. I'm a BI engineer. I use Tableau , MicroStrategy and SQL to develop Reports and Data viz. I'd like to transition towards becoming a Data engineer. I don't have a CS background but I've been practicing python and studying DS&A but I don't know where to go from here. People have been asking me to do small projects but I'm not sure where to start. Any advice or help ?
- Atlassian d@t_personYou’ve got a ways to go. Python (not just data science libraries), I mean real SWE dev work in python, Airflow, Apache Spark, HQL/Spark, CS/software engineering fundamentals, API (probably in Flask), testing. VCS/git, Agile dev, get to learning. Remember the tortoise wins the race.
- One step at a time. Was in similar situation. It’s very doable to learn everything yourself. Learning python very well will always help since it will easy to pick up new packages like airflow, etc. Once u start making headway if u could get a role as a DE at a startup then that would help u tremendously with getting a great learning experience so u can thrive at a bigger tech firm.
Where are u located?
