The Data Engineering Coaching Explained

Updated: Apr 18, 2020

I'm very happy to announce that I am now able to do coaching for Data Engineers.

In this post I am going to show you what we do in the coaching.

Usual Process

  1. You earn a certificate of knowledge - You go to university - You learn computer science - You learn data science tools and techniques

  2. You do online courses to further deepen your knowledge

  3. You do internships

  4. You research job postings and apply

  5. You become a data engineer

--> This is not working so great!

We Are Reverse Engineering The Process

  1. You research job postings (data engineer)

  2. You become your own intern by doing a project that uses skills and technologies from those job postings

  3. You create your own certificate of knowledge through documenting your work and building a professional profile

  4. You apply to the researched jobs or jobs just like those, showing off your skills

  5. You become a Data Engineer

It's a great initiative. I am thrilled to learn from this. Do let me know how to register for the classes!


What is the difference between the free content and coaching classes offered? is it only the office hours? What is office hours at 10 PM german time is not suitable?

Also, how do we get help in picking up the right project to work on? And, should the project be completed in a week? And the validity of the coaching says only 12 weeks, but what if for some reasons you get a little busy with professional life and did not get time to complete the tasks for that week.
