At Big Data Beard, we work hard to give you the technical stories and insights that we think you want to hear about. Whether it is use cases, book reviews, videos of our podcasts, or conversations with some of the smartest people in the data analytics industry, we are focused on you.

Every once in a while though, we need to stop, breathe, take a break, and do something for the non-IT community. This year a few of the Big Data Beards are getting together and participating in the Spartan Sprint in Boston, at Fenway Park on November 10, 2018. We aren’t doing this just for ourselves though, we are doing it for our family and friends. We are doing it to raise money for Our SAM Foundation.

Our SAM Foundation raises money in order to provide scholarships to people that are battling addiction. The scholarships are for those who wish to pursue rehabilitation or sober living, but lack the necessary funds or insurance to do so. If you would like to support us and the organization, please consider donating and simply put “For Big Data Beard” in the message. It would mean a lot to us. In the meantime, if you still have questions, we put a video together for you.

And always… thank you for your support!!!
