This is the exact post I’ve been looking for. Nice, clear path from software development to data engineering — if not necessarily an easy path.

Seems like the core skills are these: SQL, NoSQL (Mongo/Cassandra), ETL (Stitch Data, Segment), Warehousing (Redshift, Panoply), Hadoop — Hive/MapReduce, Airflow, Spark, Java, Python, API design, Kafka

Any I’m missing or any you think a junior data engineer doesn’t really need to worry about?
