Summit highlights Trino’s explosive growth and unique use cases, featuring speakers from Netflix, Tabular and DoorDash
BOSTON, October 14, 9a.m. EST — Starburst, the analytics anywhere company, today announced it will host the inaugural Trino Summit on October 21-22, 2021 sponsored by Amazon Web Services, Immuta, and Privacera. The Trino Summit will celebrate the incredible growth of the open source project with a speaker lineup that includes companies such as Starburst, Netflix, Tabular, and DoorDash. Starburst is also announcing the launch of trinoforum.org with the goal of making it easier for community members to navigate popular support topics.
Ten months after the rebranding of PrestoSQL to Trino, the distributed SQL query engine community & code continues to flourish. Despite the rebrand, community members and engagement metrics have grown significantly: Slack members have grown 57%, Github stars have seen 157% growth, and YouTube subscribers have grown 206%. Today, the Trino community stands stronger than ever with companies such as Netflix, LinkedIn, Lyft, Nielsen, Shopify, Pinterest, Salesforce and more playing a key role in its ongoing development.
This level of community growth is attributed to the attention to detail of all contributors to the project. This year brought an exciting array of new features that yield expanded utility to Trino, especially in enterprise analytics and security. Key new features include:
The Trino Summit aims to showcase the prowess of the open source project. It will feature numerous sessions on all of the new features and aspects of the project, as well as its unique use cases. Highlights of the summit include:
“Dain, David and I are thrilled to see the growth of the Trino project and community,” said Martin Traverso, Trino and Presto Co-Creator and Starburst CTO. “It’s always been our goal to create a lasting open source project and today we’re millions of downloads strong and growing. The recent enhancements spanning performance, security, and connectivity are all fundamental to the continued success of our code, and this inaugural Trino Summit gives us an opportunity to continue building our community.”
Each year, the community publishes a summary blog post detailing the extensive list of features that landed in the project since Trino split from the Presto project. See the blogs from 2019 and 2020 for more details.
“Starburst takes its role in the Trino community very seriously,” said Justin Borgman, Starburst CEO and co-founder. “While we have a vested interest in seeing the Trino community succeed, we see our role as stewards rather than captains. We contributed multiple features from the Starburst product back to the project this year, and we’re excited to share that we’ve launched trinoforum.org to help community members easily navigate support topics. Hosting the inaugural Trino Summit is another step in helping guide this wonderful community.”
