Python, SQL, C#

If not C# specifically, it’s good to have a more structured programming language in your arsenal - C#, C++, Java. Certain tools you’ll come across with custom scripting functionality embedded will not support Python.

I’m skilled in both SQL and Python, but I’ve found that Alteryx has been a huge time saver as well for most things that you would otherwise create storedprocs for/data wrangling. Highly recommend getting their free certification

KPMG2 - definitely. I think it runs on Python in the backend, but I agree, if you know SQL, Alteryx can be redundant. I’m proficient in both, so I will say I prefer Alteryx for certain things such as what EY2 said and also it allows certain functions much faster than typing out the actual SQL (pivots, selecting columns, casting columns, etc.)

Hi, I am working as a Senior Software Engineer (Android) in Chandigarh and have over 7.5 years of experience. My CTC is 13.8 LPA. Am I underpaid?

After working 15 months on a big project, I was replaced by another creative who finished producing it. Dream client. Dream content. I was never told this was happening. The project just kept rolling on and I was not invited to the meetings. The company recently released the work and everyone is fawning over it. Much of the concept is the same, which I had a key role in. Due to Covid it was packaged differently, but still the same messaging. I’m so angry. but not sure I have the right. 😖
