A good venue for reaching out to folks from industry would be meet ups. For
example, my company, Hortonworks, regularly organizes them. In fact there are
several happening next week in San Jose during Data works summit (same city,
but you don’t need to be an attendee of the conference to attend the meet ups).
I’ll introduce you to the folks at Hortonworks who organize these meet ups.
Even though it’s short notice, maybe they can find a slot for you to speak.
Do you know of folks who organize meet ups in the bay area?
