What is Data Engineering?

The world of Data is growing at an extremely rapid pace and the skills needed to work within this space are growing at a similar rate.

Working within Data roles requires transitional skill sets, such as numerical and analytical skills, but it is now expanding into managing data in a variety of storage systems (e.g. databases, data warehouses, data lakes) using programming skills in languages like SQL and Python. As businesses store and handle more and more data, skills in Big Data technologies like Hadoop and Spark are increasingly relevant.
