What’s up dear readers ? I’ve been absent for almost two months. It was for a good reason, I was working on one of my Dreams (I’ll talk about it in a Future blog post)

A new year means, new resolutions. A good resolution to have in 2022 is doing a career pivot and become a Data Engineer. I am sharing with you an updated version of my Data Engineering Roadmap. For every skill I’ve identified as essential, I am linking to THE BEST online course you can find on the matter. I am assuming you’re completely new to the tech industry so feel free to skip the steps and concepts you’re already comfortable with.

1. Programming Languages

Learn one / or two of the following Programming Languages (Python — Java — Scala)

2. Learn Linux

3. Learn about Data Structures and Algorithms

4. Learn about Core DBMS (Data Base Management Systems)
