On-Demand Virtual Round Table

Building the Presto Open Source Community

Presto is a widely adopted federated SQL engine that data platform teams use to perform ad-hoc querying of data in place. Facebook donated PrestoDB, the original Presto project, to the Linux Foundation to create the Presto Foundation. Other members include Uber, Twitter, Alibaba, and Alluxio. Ahana, the Presto-based analytics company recently joined the Foundation as well.

In this round table moderated by Eric Kavanagh of The Bloor Group, panelists will discuss all aspects of building a thriving open source community around PrestoDB including:

  • Why Presto is so popular & the problems it solves
  • The open source model the foundation follows
  • Why governance and transparency are so important to an open source community
  • What the community looks for in open source projects

Join us as experts from the Presto Foundation including Uber, Facebook, Alibaba, and Ahana share their views.
