I was recently asked if a data engineer can become a data science. How difficult is it for data engineers to switch career to data scientist and what type of training is involved. Looking for responses from data engineers and data scientists.
Data engineers work on building data pipelines, storages and optimizing the data processing and make the data ready for data scientists.
Data scientists will collect the data and build their predictive models to make data-driving decisions.
You'll have to develop a strong foundation in statistics, probability, linear algebra, and calculus. Learning programming languages like Python or R, which are popular for data analysis and machine learning will be super useful.
Certifications for Data Science
- IBM Data Science Professional Certificate
- Microsoft Certified: Azure Data Scientist Associate
- Google Cloud Professional Data Engineer
- Data Science Council of America (DASCA) Certification
I'll be happy to provide more information.

Elon Musk has completed his takeover of Twitter and one of the new changes he's proposed is $8/mo for the Twitter blue tick.
Do you think this move is justified? Let me know!
When it comes to building a successful business - does age matter? Well, the data shows that it does. The average age of tech entrepreneurs at the time of IPO is about 43.3 years!
Now that's totally contrasting to the news that we read daily. The Internet is full of success stories of entrepreneurs who became successful business owners and millionaires in their early 20s or 30s. But the data shows the truth - the older you are, the more are your chances of starting a successful business.
The IT and technology industry is going through massive layoffs. The latest news being Salesforce laying off 2500 employees and Meta planning to show pink slip to, if I'm not wrong, 11000 employees worldwide.
How long do you think these layoff cycles will last? Someone said this will continue till January 2023. What are your thoughts?
Wish to know if data engineering is in demand these days. I am a java programmer with over 5 years of experience. Recently seen a colleague switch to data engineering and got a big jump.
I'm curious to know if data engineering will be in demand 5 and 10 years from now.
