She Loves Data, in partnership with Qubole, brings together two communities in the first of several She Loves Data Engineering events.

Here’s a chance to learn more about the Presto, an open source, distributed SQL query engine, and hear from data engineering experts from Grab, BIGO and Qubole as they present case studies and talk about how data engineers and Presto open source contributors in the region are leveraging the engine in their respective industries.
