Data Engineering course in the future?
I'm wondering if there is a plan for a data engineering course in the future?
We are currently working on a Data Literacy course, which we'll release in the upcoming months. I wouldn't say this is directly a Data Engineering course, but it will cover processes related to handling big data sets.
As far as courses on data structures and algorithms - as much as I believe they are integral part of any computer science related profession, they are quite theoretical and heavy and. What I've observed is that the majority of people entering data science would prefer hands on experience, which we offer with our Python Programming and SQL courses.
However, I always love hearing ideas and suggestions from our students and I'll think about how we can bring more data engineering related content to our platform. Thanks for reaching out!
Thanks for getting back to me. I was thinking more of understanding and building data pipelines, learning about cloud-based infrastructure, etc.
I do hope we get a chance to work on this topic in the future.
But in the current pipeline, we don't have a course on this topic. We'll be mentioning azure in one upcoming course, but it will be a section, rather than the focus of the entire course.
