Hi All,
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 ?
Thanks

    You’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.

      Ok. No sure I can speak to the tech scene there. I do know we have a Bengaluru office and it seems there a number of tech companies there. Not sure about anywhere else in India, sorry :/

      Tech scene in Hyderabad is like Seattle I'd say if Bangalore was The Bay.
      And thank you for taking time to share your experience 😊

    To be honest it's not the pay, for me. I want to upskill so I know I'm learning and moving towards roles I think I could work well in.
    An expertise in DE and BI is my focus for now.
