Hi Eli,

Congrats at getting your talk accepted at the Hadoop Summit.  I've seen 
it listed in the talks and I'm sure it is something that folks would be 
interested in seeing.

You should definitely reach out to your mentor at Hortonworks regarding 

Since you did the heavy lifting and the submission it would be best if 
you can give your talk.  Last year when I gave a talk, there was 
standing room only (folks were really interested in Giraph).  It would 
be a great experience for you and also great for exposure for your new 
company.  I would advise that you try really hard to make it.  If you 
absolutely cannot, I hope that someone local might be able to make it on 
your behalf.
