About Sam

Sam Debruyn is currently working as a Technical Lead Data & Cloud. His interests lie in data engineering and cloud native technologies.

Data Engineering?

Data Engineering has been around for a while, but the term itself is still relatively new. A lot of people were actually doing data engineering without them even realising it! I personally see a data engineer as the person who deploys data platforms and data science solutions and actually puts them in production. A data engineer builds data pipelines, data lakes, data warehouses and works with various data sources and sinks. Roadmap to becoming a data engineer.

Talk tech to me

These are the technologies I work most with.

  • Programming languages: Python, SQL, Go, HCL, Scala…
  • Cloud: ❤️ Azure
  • Tools: dbt, Databricks/Spark, Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes…

This is not my resume, I’ve worked with other technologies in the past and I’m always eager to play with new technologies.

Computer programming is an art, because it applies accumulated knowledge to the world, because it requires skill and ingenuity, and especially because it produces objects of beauty. A programmer who subconsciously views himself as an artist will enjoy what he does and will do it better.
