So in honor of the tip-off of the 2016-2017 NBA season, let’s take a look at how data is revolutionizing basketball.

Why I Left Big Consulting for A Startup

*This is NOT me or my family, but it is something I’d probably do, if given the opportunity. The origin of the photo is unknown

One month ago, I was an IT consultant at a Big Four firm, working with Fortune 500 companies to help them solve their problems around IT compliance/risk, cybersecurity and operational technology. It was a stable, well-paying job with a clear path for upward mobility—one that brought a lot of security for my wife and son.

I left that security for Astronomer.
