Why Data Engineering?

Big Data and the Cloud is changing the game, leading the way for a new generation of Data Engineers. Dice Insights reported in 2019 that data engineering is a top trending job in the technology industry, beating out computer scientists, web designers, and database architects [1]. LinkedIn listed it as one of its jobs on the rise in 2021 [2] and has seen a 50% year-over-year growth in the number of open positions.

There’s one problem: there are not enough Data Engineers.. If you have been looking for a career in tech, now’s the time!

In our webinar, Data Stack Academy and Epicodus will discuss how to become a Data Engineer—tools to learn, finding an internship, how to attract employers, and more. Questions are welcome—either by chat box, email prior, or live during the webinar.

Alma Frankenstein

Data Engineer

Alma Frankenstein is delighted to be a teacher and junior data engineer at Tura. She first learned to program in a series of dingy basements, where smart, weird dudes taught her Clojure, Python, and the Linux command line. She later went on to polish her web dev skills at Epicodus bootcamp, and to work at the molecular genomics lab at OHSU, using cutting-edge AI to identify variants in DNA and help diagnose rare genetic diseases. Alma holds a Master’s of Science in Systems Science from Portland State University, where she studies cybernetics, information theory, networks, chaos, and complexity in nonlinear systems. She is interested in the use of data and technology to promote social justice and climate activism, and believes that accessibility to careers in tech is essential in supporting those goals.
