Data engineers vs. data scientists

O'Reilly Media - Data

It’s important to understand the differences between a data engineer and a data scientist. Misunderstanding or not knowing these differences are making teams fail or underperform with big data. I think some of these misconceptions come from the diagrams that are used to describe data scientists and data engineers. Overly simplistic venn diagram with data scientists and data engineers. Yes, both positions work on big data.
