DataDriven.SG in Singapore – Free Meetup on Data Engineering, July 24 2018

Join us for our meet-up on Data Engineering organised by Dentsu Aegis Network & DataDriven.sg!

Data Engineering (and it’s problems and challenges) doesn’t get enough spotlight. If you look at the trending topics, it’s AI, ML, Data Science, Deep Learning and what not. Yet research tells you that up to 80% of the sexiest job in the world (aka Data Scientist) is made up of gathering and cleaning data and dealing with its quality. What Data Engineering means, what challenges it meets and how you can grow up as Data Engineer – these and other questions will be covered this evening. Speakers presentations will be followed by an informal panel discussion – prepare your questions!
The event starts at 6:30 pm and will last about 1.5 to 2 hours.
