Decoding Data Roles - Data Scientist vs Data Analyst vs Data Engineer

SFU VentureLabs Harbour Centre


*** Due to weather conditions, this event has been postponed until Feb 26th. Thanks for your understanding. *** Whether your company is just starting your own data journey or trying to break out of the Data Wheel of Death (https://brianbalfour.com/essays/growth-data-mistakes), hiring the right person in the right role (data scientist, data analyst or data engineer/architect) at the right time is critical to unlocking value from your data. To help shed some light on how these 3 roles differ, please join Nada Salem, a data scientist from Microsoft, Sam Piltan, a Business Analyst/Analytics Advisor at Providence Health Care and Avi Varadarajulu, a data engineer with EA Games. Each of our experts will provide insight on their current roles, how they function within a larger team and how best to extract value from someone like them within your organisation followed by Q & A. The cost is a five dollar donation to Covenant House Vancouver, paid in advance. In 2018, attendees like you donated $400 dollars to help Vancouver's homeless youth. Photo by M. B. M. on Unsplash
