About this event

Overview:

In this session, we will delve into the essential building blocks of data engineering, placing a spotlight on the discovery process. From framing the problem statement to navigating the intricacies of exploratory data analysis (EDA) using Python, VSCode, Jupyter Notebooks, and GitHub, you'll gain a solid understanding of the fundamental aspects that drive effective data engineering projects.

Agenda:

1. Introduction:

- Unveiling the importance of the discovery process in data engineering.

- Setting the stage with a real-world problem statement that will guide our exploration.

2. Setting the Stage:

- Downloading and comprehending sample data to kickstart our discovery journey.

- Configuring the development environment with VSCode and Jupyter Notebooks.

3. Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA):

- Delving deep into EDA techniques with a focus on the discovery phase.

- Demonstrating practical approaches using Python to uncover insights within the data.

4. Code-Centric Approach:

- Advocating the significance of a code-centric approach during the discovery process.

- Showcasing how a code-centric mindset enhances collaboration, repeatability, and efficiency.

5. Version Control with GitHub:

- Integrating GitHub seamlessly into our workflow for version control and collaboration.

- Managing changes effectively to ensure a streamlined data engineering discovery process.

6. Real-World Application:

- Applying insights gained from EDA to address the initial problem statement.

- Discussing practical solutions and strategies derived from the discovery process.


Key Takeaways:

- Mastery of the foundational aspects of data engineering.

- Hands-on experience with EDA techniques, emphasizing the discovery phase.

- Appreciation for the value of a code-centric approach in the data engineering discovery process.
