From DBA to DE:  Becoming a Data Engineer

Today’s Oracle DBA has acquired extremely valuable skills that actually make it simpler than ever to transition to the role of Data Engineer (DE).

  • Describe what current skills are needed to fulfill the role, and what upskilling is required
  • Discuss how best to maintain relevance for your career’s foreseeable future

The attendee will:

  • Understand what DEs are likely to do on a day-to-day basis
  • Discover what skills she needs to improve or attain to fulfill the DE role
  • Learn which professional organizations are useful to connect with to maintain her DE career
