Has anyone here transitioned from data science to data engineering? What skills are needed to succeed at top tech/FAANG companies as a data engineer?

Big data tools, CI/CD automation stuff, ability to work on different data types, working with REST calls, k8s if you want to get fancy

May I ask what's motivating you to move in this direction? I normally read the opposite, folks trying to move to DS. Also, any reason you're focusing on DE instead of SWE? Latter pays better

Thanks for your reply! For the past 1 year I have been doing a lot of data engineering projects involving building data pipelines, orchestration, Spark etc and I find it more interesting than building ML models. Since I’m not from a CS background, SWE is a step too far for me so I figured data engineering is my best bet.

I have a reinforcement ML algorithm that reads historical data for a stock and tries to make a prediction on its future price. The training data is 20 years of daily indicators and the evaluation is 1 year while the testing data is also 1 year. My problem is that it takes the algorithm almost 12 hrs to make one full run through a training session on my MacBook. I also tried with google colab pro using their gpus and tpus but they’re only slightly faster. Is there any way to speed this up?

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.

Timelines are a challenge, but it's totally doable for ops/firm development moonshots.

What are you opinions on “Women in XYZ” groups that have surfaced. Totally understand the problem of less female representation in Tech but is this the right way to solve this problem.
