Introducing Starburst TV

Join us December 16, 2021 at 11 am EST for a LinkedIn Live session of Starburst TV: The Data Mesh Channel. In our first episode, Starburst’s VP of Data Mesh Consulting Services, Adrian Estala invites Verizon’s Executive Director of Governance, Risk and Compliance, Gavin Grounds to discuss how organizations can perhaps quantify risk on a mesh.

In this live session of The Data Mesh Channel, Adrian aims to cover the following topics:

  • Data Mesh provides a common framework to enable consistent data risk quantification
  • Data Products generate relevant and context-rich business discussions on data risks
  • Transparency in risk management is key to removing barriers to full data democratization

Trino Meetup Groups

We started three virtual groups: trino-americas, trino-emea, and trino-apac that will serve as a place for everyone to meet by timezone. Once we are able to do in person meet ups again, they will be a place to go if you don’t have a Trino meetup in your town or want to attend both physical and virtual meetups. The long term goal is to slowly expand to more local small meetups.
