There is a huge supply and demand mismatch in the talent market. One reason for the imbalance is that modern data engineering requires new tools/skills and traditional learning environments such as universities, colleges, and bootcamps don’t keep up with the trends. Another reason is that data engineering is hard to teach!
Curriculums need to be extremely hands-on, and it requires very seasoned instructors who work in the fields to teach in the most practical way.
Don’t fall into the trap of learning just a bunch of fancy tools.
Data Engineers need to know how to put them to work together!
