Plus the theoretical knowledge of how to design data platforms & pipelines, how to choose the right data store and do a schema design.

In 3 Months: Build an Open Source Platform

After 3 months you built an awesome Open Source platform with tools like FastAPI, Apache Kafka, Apache Spark streaming, MongoDB and Streamlit. This will help you get into Data Engineering without a cloud platform subscription.

Depending on your speed or interests you can also add knowledge in orchestrating pipelines with Airflow, process time series data with InfluxDB, monitor pipelines with Elasticsearch and build a Elasticsearch contact tracing app.

Or in 3 Months: Data Engineering on AWS

Instead of going open source you gain extensive AWS experience by building your own stream and batch processing platform including deploying containerized apps like ML algorithms on AWS.

You will know how to work with all major tools like API Gateway, Kinesis, Lambda, AWS Glue, S3, DynamoDB, Redshift, Cloudwatch, RDS, Elastic Container Registry and Service.

If you take the open source and AWS tracks you will also be able to complete our Associate Data Engineer certification.

Plus: Modern Data Warehouses and Azure Streaming

Your schedule is fully customizable. Either with annual or unlimited access you have enough time to get familiar buiding streaming pipelines on Azure or Data Warehousing on AWS, GCP, Databricks and Hadoop if you are interested in that.

Within 3 to 4 weeks you can easily also gain the knowlege to work with AWS Athena and Quicksight, GCP BigQuery and Datastudio or build ETL pipelines and Warehouses on Databricks.

Within 2 weeks you will know the basics of Azure and be able to build streaming pipelines with API Management, EventHub, Function Apps, CosmosDB and PowerBI.

      Data Engineering Academy in Numbers

      What my students say

      Godwin E.

      Great course by Andreas, my favorite part of the course are the example projects, it gives you the understanding of how data engineering is done in the real world, also get to have a portfolio of projects across different cloud platforms. 

      Andy N.

      Andreas's method of targeting skills that are in demand and building projects around them is the fastest way to get a job in Data Engineering. I was able to get a job in 2 months. Thanks Andreas.

      Ritesh C.

      I appreciate the way Andreas has been able to identify and bring forward real concepts that help understand the overall subject better. He covers a lot of contemporary tools and tech in small capsule courses that are easy to understand and build upon. Glad to have opted in.

      Here's what is coming soon:

      Snowflake Fundamentals

      Whenever you hear data warehouse and cloud Snowflake is not far. Togehter with Databricks Snowflake is the biggest competitor to AWS, Azure and GCP especially in the warehousing sector.

      In this course you will learn all the fundamentals of Snowflake including fundamental concepts and a great hands-on part that gets you started quickly.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Why join Learn Data Engineering?

      Unlike typical online course, the content on Learn Data Engineering grows every week. Andreas and other trainers are constantly adding new topics, videos and worksheets.

      Is Learn Data Engineering right for me?

      Our academy is right for you if you are interested in the plumbing of Data Science. We have helped many members and coaching students who work as Data Scientist, Data Analyst, Database Administrator, Software Developer as well as graduates who are searching for Data Engineering jobs or want to apply the skills in the future.

      What is the difference between annual (12 months) and unlimited subscription?

      With the Annual Subscription you have access to all current and future courses for one year, starting with the day of your purchase.

      What prior knowledge should I have for the course?

      The optimal foundation for Data Engineering is having prior computer science knowledge. As a Data Engineer you need to be able to code and use SQL to talk to databases. Don’t worry though, if you are coming from a different field. In our basic section we have courses and links to free external resources that help you gain that knowledge.

      Can I earn course certificates?

      Yes, you can earn course certificates for all the courses in the academy. We also provide a Associate Data Engineer certification to help you prove that you are job ready.

      Here's the link: http://bit.ly/YoutubeAndreaskayy

      Or read the data engineering cookbook. It's going to help you a lot learning more about Data Engineering.

      Do students need to create their own cloud accounts and will this incur additional costs?

      Yes, you need to create your own accounts on the cloud platforms. All major platforms currently offer either free credits or free tiers. Please check the cloud providers websites for details, because their conditions may change.

      Our courses are designed to use those free tiers and credits so you don’t pay extra.

      One exception is AWS course. Not all services used by the course are available in free tier. The expected charge is usually be below $10/month though. We show you in the beginning of the AWS course how you can set alarm thresholds (in $) so you get notified immediately if you exceed your limits.
