Career benefitial way to give back to the community: collaborate with universities on grad student projects.

I've been on both ends of analytics capstones, and highly recommend this for long term projects. Exposure to real world data is huge for students, while companies gain from free outside ideas from a whole bunch of people including faculty, and potentially prime a hire or two if the stars align. Timelines are a challenge, but it's totally doable for ops/firm development moonshots.

How would you get started with this from a company side?


Opening up your data takes management buy-in and legal oversight (approval, NDAs, anonymization criteria). In other words, pitch your manager and go from there.

Some kind of exec buy-in is good too, so that you have budget for little things.


It's already happening. What kind of examples do you want?

Last night at a downtown Orlando bar, I got approached by 3 different girls - 2 UCF students and 1 recent grad. I am much older.

Hi All,

I am an ETL developer who got a chance to work on spark recently within my organization. Initially struggled and now got comfortable with scala spark in my project. I am looking to change job in data engineering but most JDs I see are asking for pyspark and not scala spark, only few are asking scala or Java or python.

Should I really learn python and pyspark as well to be able to find more opportunities? Or should I only apply for scala based roles?

Also I heard from one of the friend
