What’s the top MUST-HAVE skill for next-gen AI engineers?
If you guessed data science or ML, you’d be DEAD WRONG!
According to Andrej Karpathy and many other AI / ML giants, the future of landing work in AI engineering lies in your software development skills!
Why? Well because with the API availability of Foundation Models that are available for building AI products, you’ll soon no longer need to have deep expertise in training ML models or data engineering.
Instead, you’ll need to have expertise in software development, enough so to take LLM APIs and construct them into an AI product. If and only if that’s completed effectively would you begin incorporating data and model tuning.

⏰ Join This Free AI Engineering Skill-Building Event Tomorrow
AI developer skills are forecast to be the most highly-demanded skills of the next decade, but - as always - the early bird catches the worm.
Tomorrow, a lovely data startup called SingleStore will be hosting a free live hands-on training session that you can attend to learn more about what’s actually involved in being an AI engineer.
Signing up for this free training is an excellent idea if you’re interested in developing deep AI engineering expertise. (I’ll certainly be joining!)
The training is built specifically for data professionals and developers.
Time: Tuesday, August 15 at 10 am PDT, replays available for all who register now.
Join me to learn more about AI engineering as it relates to optimizing MongoDB and to see AI engineering skills being demonstrated in real-time.
Oh and don’t worry if you can’t join the event live, just sign up for the event now and they’ll send you the event replay afterward.
Note: I plan to attend this event myself, for my own learning benefits. That said, SingleStore has agreed to pay me a small fee for creating and publishing this #sponsored content.
