Summary: Not everyone wants to invest the time and money to become a data scientist, and if you’re mid-career the barriers are even higher. If you still want to be deeply involved in the new data-driven economy and well paid, the growth rate and opportunities as a data engineer or business analyst need to be on your radar screen.
Summary: Is everyone a ‘data scientist’? What about ‘data engineers’ and the junior versus senior, or skill level distinctions? We do seem to need some agreement about titling. Data Scientists is still the prestige title but there are some folks lobbying to take that title away.
