People keep asking me for a path to become a data engineer and, let's be honest, you will never achieve that with just knowledge of the tools.
Finding out how companies do data engineering on their data science platforms is way more useful.
Over the next weeks we will go over each study on my YouTube channel. The stuff we talk about will then go into the cookbook too.
