 Is it still ok to join now because I see that it started on the 1st of May.

Hello Bonolo,

Yes, you're more than welcome to join the challenge, anyone can join before the challenge ends. However the earlier you join, the earlier you can start earning experience points. All the best and looking forward to seeing you on the Leader board.

Hello @LeboMadise , hope you are well. Are there any prerequestites for the Data Engineer League? My concern is how in depth or technical this challenge will be.

Hello @Stirls I'm well thank you, there are no prerequisites, if you have a working knowledge of SQL and python or Scala and have gone through the modules outlined in the Data Engineer League, you should be able to meet the required knowledge to sit for the Exam DP-203.

 

Please see Exam DP-203: Data Engineering on Microsoft Azure – Skills Measured for the skills measured. 

@LeboMadise Do you know of any meetups in KZN?

Hi Lebo?

Do you know of meetups in Gauteng?
Thank you, Michael. I will immediately join the group!
