San Mateo, Calif. – March 17, 2021 Ahana, the self-service analytics company for Presto, announced today their participation in PrestoCon Day, a day dedicated to all things PrestoDB taking place on Wednesday, March 24th. 

Following last year’s massively successful PrestoCon that had hundreds of global attendees and over 20 sessions, PrestoCon Day is a day-long event for the PrestoDB community by the PrestoDB community. In addition to being a premier sponsor of the event, Ahana will be participating in four sessions; two Ahana customers, Carbon and Cartona, will also be presenting their Presto use cases.

“PrestoCon Day will feature a lot of the work that core Presto engineers have been building over the past six months, and we’re looking forward to sharing that with the community,” said Dipti Borkar, Cofounder and Chief Product Officer, Ahana, Program Chair of PrestoCon and Chair of the Presto Foundation Outreach Committee. “In addition to the biggest internet companies like Facebook, Uber and Twitter speaking, we’ll also have modern day SaaS companies presenting how they’re leveraging the power of Presto on AWS with Ahana. We’re thrilled to host an event for the Presto community that helps members, new and seasoned, connect with one another.”

“Presto Foundation was created to accelerate and foster the adoption of Presto, and PrestoCon Day is an important event for the community to showcase its project momentum, usage and advancements,” said Chris Aniszczyk, Vice President, Developer Relations, The Linux Foundation. “We look forward to the conference and bringing the Presto community together for a day of collaboration and community-building.”
