I am currently enrolled in data engineering boot camp. We go over various technologies azure , pyspark , airflow , Hadoop ,nosql,SQL, python. But not over something like databricks. I am in contact with lots of recent graduates who landed a job. Almost everyone recommend me to learn databricks. But I have no idea what it is and how to learn? There's not much good resources out there on YouTube or any other website.
