It was time for a refresh. A little while ago in April 2021, we announced the Trino version of our definitive guide. But again, Trino as a project and community has continued to innovate and grow. Numerous smaller and larger details changed, and the examples and resources needed to be fixed.
Today, we are happy to announce that after a few months of updates, testing, and editing, the second edition of Trino: The Definitive Guide is available.

The new edition of the book from O’Reilly is available in digital formats as well as physical copies. You can find more information about the book on our permanent page about it.
The book is now updated to Trino release 392 for all filenames, installation methods, commands, names and properties. We addressed all problems that our readers found and reported to us as well.
We updated to Java 17 usage, added more SQL statements, and added info about Python tools like dbt and clients like Metabase. We talk about the lakehouse architecture and new connectors like Iceberg and Delta Lake.
So what are you waiting for? Go get a copy, check out the updated example code repository, give us a star, provide feedback, and contact us on Slack.

And one last tip, join us at Trino Summit 2022 in San Francisco in November for a chat and maybe even a signed hardcopy of the book.
