Creating A Data Engineering Culture
Jesse Anderson – Data Engineer, Creative Engineer & Managing Director, Big Data Institute
Data scientists get the glory, but when they experience success it is due to a data engineering culture. In a data engineering culture, the value and importance of data engineering are recognized throughout the organization.
The right ratio of data engineers to data scientists is 2-5 to 1. The skills needed on a data engineering team include skills related to distributed systems, programming, analysis, visual and verbal communication, being a project veteran, schema, and domain knowledge.
