VMwor-- er, I mean, VMware Explore is a few weeks away, taking place August 28th to September 1st, 2022 in San Francisco, CA at the Moscone Center.  Pre-pandemic, VMworld was always good for a list of parties and events to attend.  Now that we're starting to get back to "normal" and attending shows in person, what's the list of parties going to look like?  We're starting to see a few take shape, but so far, it doesn't come close to the list from the past.  

NOTE: Most events will require you to take some type of signup action in order to attend.  Yes, even if the event is free.  They need to do that in order to take a proper head count or know when to shut things down if the list grows too big.  These things are generally first come, first served.  So if you are interested, I suggest you sign up if you are available before it is too late.  And also take note, some of these parties may be invitation only or you might have to meet some other requirement in order to sign up / attend.

If I'm missing an event, contact me or send me a Tweet (@vmblog) and I'll get it added.
