This Worst Data Engineering Mistake you’ve seen? Reddit thread includes beauties such as:

“We started a redshift cluster just to experiment and we forgot to kill it off, after 1 year someone noticed. We wasted around $120k.”

“An engineer enabled debug logging in a large production etl pipepline, resulting in over $100k in additional costs from our log aggregation service over the course of a week.”

“One of my colleagues accidentally ran a series of Hadoop jobs in an N+1 loop over the weekend. Came back on Monday and had racked up $450k in compute costs.”

“Our team allowed a vendor access to a storage account with poor safety rails / warnings. They basically started an infinite loop to land the same data over and over again. Ran up a $200k+ bill in short order.”

“My team was instructed to create a script that would webscrape a site we use for client lookups. But the business analysts failed to mention there was a cost per lookup. We ended up incurring about 120k in charges during the testing phase.”

“Misplaced a parenthesis, updated years worth of financial data with the wrong values. Wasn’t discovered until a historical report was run, by which point the backups were overwritten.”
