Trino Fest goes to Boston in 2024

After the resounding success of Trino Fest and Trino Summit in 2023, Commander Bun Bun has exciting news to share: we’re taking our biggest events of the year back to being in-person. They’ll be hybrid, to be more specific, so if you can’t travel, don’t fret, you’ll still be able to watch and ask questions in chat. But if you can travel, you won’t want to miss out! Everything you already know and love about Trino Fest is moving to the East Coast for the lovely Boston summer. The event is on the 13th of June in the Hyatt Regency Boston, where we’ll have a full day of talks, time to network, and a happy hour at the end of the day. You may even get to meet Commander Bun Bun, who’s ditching the hiking gear in favor of training for the Olympics. Sound exciting?

Join us in person

Our event will be hosted at the Hyatt Regency in Boston, where we are planning a full day of festivities followed by a happy hour on the Hyatt Regency deck. There is a discounted room block set aside for those interested in attending live and staying with us in Boston. If you are looking to book hotel dates in addition to what is provided on the room block, email [email protected], and they will help you coordinate your reservation.

Regardless of whether you plan on attending in person or online, you do need to register, so make sure to click the button above!

Call for speakers

Interested in speaking? We want to hear from everyone in the Trino community who has something to share. If you aren’t sure whether it’s worth it to submit, submit anyway!

Trino contributor congregation

The day after Trino Fest, we’ll also be hosting an in-person meetup for Trino contributors and engineers to catch up, discuss the Trino roadmap, and engage directly with the maintainers in-person. It’s a great opportunity to put faces and voices to those GitHub handles, align on the big ideas or tricky PRs that have been moving slowly, and find more ways to get involved in Trino development. If you’re interested in attending, message Manfred Moser or Cole Bowden on the Trino Slack, and we’ll get you added to the attendee list and share more details.

Starburst is the organizing sponsor of the event, but to make Trino Fest a smashing success, they’re excited and interested in collaborating with other organizations within the community. If you are interested in sponsoring, email [email protected] for information.

And regardless of whether you’re planning on attending, speaking, or sponsoring, we look forward to seeing you soon!
