Today marks a professional milestone for me as I join Starburst to help drive the data lake analytics revolution. I don’t post often, but this is one of those moments I can’t help marking. I’ve been watching Starburst closely, practically since it was founded, and it’s so rare that you get to join a story in progress that you happen to believe is a genuine revolution, and also the very revolution that you’d most like to join!
Today, we are thrilled to introduce support for Python DataFrames in Starburst Galaxy with the launch and support of the PyStarburst and Ibis libraries! These libraries enable you to leverage the flexibility of Python while capitalizing on the scale and performance of the leading MPP SQL query engine. This also allows for a more seamless integration into development practices like version control, CI/CD, unit tests, etc.
