Presto: The Definitive Guide (O'Reilly)
Monday, 11 May 2020

Subtitled "SQL at Any Scale", this book shows how to perform fast interactive analytics against different data sources using the Presto high-performance, distributed SQL query engine. In this practical guide, authors Matt Fuller, Manfred Moser, and Martin Traverso show how to conduct analytics on data where it lives, whether it’s Hive, Cassandra, a relational database, or a proprietary data store. Initially developed by Facebook, open source Presto is now used by Netflix, Airbnb, LinkedIn, Twitter, Uber, and many other companies. The book shows how a single Presto query can combine data from multiple sources to allow for analytics across the entire organization.
