Join us at Cinco de Trino on May 5th! This is a half-day event filled with all things Trino, including a session hosted by Martin Traverso, Dain Sundstrom, and David Phillips.

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.
