Idk. The I'm leaving data science for data engineering trope feels like the data professional's version of VC's I'm leaving SF for Miami.

Goodbye, Data Science accurately describes two of my biggest gripes with being an analyst today.

1) My work is judged on whether or not it agrees with the assumptions of the stakeholders who asked me to do with analysis, not whether my statistical approach was solid.

2) Analysts generally blow at coding and generally don’t want to get good at it.

Analytics engineering/ data engineering the path for me :shrug
