VMworld 2015 US – all parties, gatherings, events and activities

During VMworld US a lot of parties, gatherings, events and activities are taking place. This list was put together to help you planning your trip to the conference more easily.

Take care to register early enough if necessary as there is a limited number of places for some of the gatherings. Also keep in mind that sometimes it is more interesting to visit the smaller events than the big ones…

The list fills up very quick, but I am sure there are still a lot of events missing. So please let me know via Twitter (@lessi001) or in the comments  if you know about a gathering or organize one.
