Ich habe mein 6-monatiges Praktikum im Bereich Big Data Engineering am Campus in Düsseldorf absolviert. Erst gab‘s eine spannende Einführung in unterschiedliche Technologien, wie z.B. Hadoop, Spark und Nifi. Danach konnte ich verschiedene anspruchsvolle Aufgaben übernehmen: die Implementierung von Datentransfers und die Operationalisierung von Data-Science Modellen. Das Beste daran: Durch die Arbeit in agilen Squads waren meine Arbeitsergebnisse direkt nutzbar. Besonders interessant war ein Data-Science Projekt: Dabei haben wir den Glasfaserausbau durch Integer Linear Programming optimiert.
