    A Scala API for Apache Beam and Google Cloud Dataflow.

    Generally Python is a lingua franca. I have never met a data engineer that doesn't know Python. Scala isn't used everywhere. Also, you should know that in Apache Beam (data processing framework that's gaining popularity because it can handle both streaming and batch processing and runs on spark) the language choices are Java, Python, Go and Scala. So, even if you "only" know Java, you can get started with Data engineering through apache beam.
