Are there bootcamps that provide good preparation for data engineering? I have seen that some programs offer short workshops related to data engineering, but have found very little information about more intensive, substantial programs.
To share what I have found, it looks like the NYC Data Science Academy once offered a full-time 12-week data engineering bootcamp, but now seems to offer a part-time 6-week program on Hadoop and Spark. Zipfian Academy also offered a 12-week data engineering program, but, now that it was acquired by Galvanize, a 4-week workshop on Spark is offered instead. A place called Data Application Lab offers a 10-week online data engineering bootcamp, but I have found very little information about that one.
I would be interested in any information about data...Read more

Great question. Data engineering is growing at a faster pace than data science. Sadly, the previous intensive data engineering bootcamps were poorly designed and students were unable to get jobs, which is why they are no longer available.
We are planning to launch an intensive data engineering bootcamp in Summer of 2017. It is only open to applicants who have prior software engineering or system/database administration experience. Here is a link that includes our preliminary curriculum and an email list for updates (http://www.k2datascience.com/data-engineering).
