Athena Day

Need to start querying data instantly? Amazon Athena an interactive query service that makes it easy to run interactive queries on data in Amazon S3, using standard SQL. Athena is serverless, so there is no infrastructure to setup or manage, and you can start analyzing your data immediately.

In this session, we will show you how Amazon Athena makes it easy to query your data stored in S3. First we will use Athena to create the schema for data already in S3. Second, we will demonstrate how you can run interactive queries through the built-in query editor. Lastly, we will visualize the data using Amazon QuickSight. Throughout the session we will provide best practices for structuring SQL queries, selecting file formats, and strategies to improve performance and reduce costs when querying data with Athena.
