Choosing Between Databricks and Fabric for Full-Stack Data Engineering

Hi,
I'm considering becoming a full-stack data engineer in 2024, having worked with Power BI for several years.
I'm now interested in backend engineering.
Should I learn Databricks or focus on Fabric, as many Databricks features seem present in Fabric?
What are your thoughts?
Thanks in advance 🙂

Hi @Hadi2021 ,
Regarding your question about Databricks and Fabric, both are powerful tools that can help you with backend engineering. Databricks is a cloud-based data processing platform that provides a collaborative environment for data scientists, engineers, and analysts. On the other hand, Fabric is a unified analytics platform that brings together all the data and analytics tools that organizations need.

If you want to work on big data and collaborate with other data engineers, you can choose databricks as your concentration. If you want to work on a unified platform that brings together all the data and analytics tools your organization needs, or are looking for a platform for data integration, data warehousing, and data analytics, Fabric is a good choice.
Ultimately, the choice between Databricks and Fabric depends on your specific needs and goals. If you’re interested in learning more about these tools, I recommend checking out the following resources:
