Last week, I had the pleasure to attend Open Source Summit North America 2023 in Vancouver. A quick hop across the Strait of Georgia got me right into the event and into the midst of my peers of open source developers, advocates, and enthusiasts.
A highlight of the event for me was catching up with many existing and new friends from the open source communities. It was inspiring to learn details about the success of open source projects, including Opensearch, RISC-V, the British Columbia government DevHub project, NASA open source and open data projects, and many others.
In my interview with John Furrier and Rob Strechay for SiliconANGLE theCUBE, I was able to share more information about Trino, query engines, lakehouses, and Starburst. We also talked about the benefits of using Trino for different use cases, how data continues to be crucial, and how it is even important thanks to the new wave of large language models.
SiliconANGLE theCUBE features more interview coverage from the summit. and The Linux Foundation makes keynote and session videos as well as presentation decks available.
My special thanks goes to Starburst for sending me to represent the Trino community at the summit. I also really appreciate the help for organizing Trino Fest. The speaker proposals are all in, and the free, virtual event is promising to be a great showcase of Trino, modern lakehouse platforms and tools from the community of users, contributors and vendors, and our increased adoption for a wide range of use cases.
Join us in June for the event, you don’t want to miss some of the announcements and demos.
