Prepare to join hundreds of developers and software engineers at PrestoCon 2023, taking place on December 5-6, 2023 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. This event is dedicated to supporting and learning more about Presto, the open-source SQL query engine for data analytics and the Open Data Lakehouse.
This year, PrestoCon promises an exciting future for Presto with the announcement of watsonx.data, an open data lakehouse built on Presto’s open lakehouse architecture. This platform offers features such as querying, governance, and open data formats for accessing and sharing data.
If you’re involved in data analytics or data infrastructure, PrestoCon is a must-attend event. Here are three reasons why you should consider attending:
1. Keep up with the latest innovation updates about next-gen Presto, including the native C++ worker for Presto.
PrestoCon will feature a track dedicated to the latest advancements in the native C++ worker for Presto, known as Prestissimo, which is built on the open-source Velox project. Leading contributors from Bytedance, IBM, and Meta will share their work and the innovation behind Prestissimo.
2. Gain insights from IBM leaders and engineers on the latest advancements in open-source Presto and watsonx.data.
As strong advocates of the open-source Presto project, IBM has 5 Presto committers and numerous contributors actively working on the project roadmap. At PrestoCon, IBM will share more about their contributions to Presto and provide insights into their work with watsonx.data, the data store built on Presto’s open-data lakehouse architecture.
3. Get hands-on with Presto in technical workshops.
PrestoCon workshops provide a great opportunity to get hands-on experience with Presto. These workshops cater to beginners as well as advanced Presto users. The workshops will cover various Presto topics, including getting started with Presto, building an Open Data Lakehouse with Presto and Apache Hudi, and getting started with Prestissimo on Docker. Be sure to register for these workshops quickly as capacity is limited.
PrestoCon 2023 promises to be a remarkable event for developers and engineers passionate about open source and cutting-edge innovation. Register today to secure your spot at this community conference and immerse yourself in the latest innovation and community news in the Presto ecosystem.
