## Open source and open to all
10

11
The Eclipse IoT working group is a vendor-neutral community regrouping Eclipse Foundation members that wish to freely collaborate on new technology development in the IoT space.
12

13
Membership in the working group brings many [benefits](https://www.eclipse.org/membership/), including joint marketing initiatives and direct access to a community of skilled and dedicated open source developers. However, our meetings and activities are open to members and non-members alike since we wish to manage our working group in an open, transparent and meritocratic manner.

It is also available in [iCal format](https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/u5j68s710reqmr37vd78jdlbm4%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics), which is compatible with most desktop calendar clients.

### Monthly Working Group Calls

We hold a call for working group members every month, the fourth Tuesday of the month. The aim of this call is to discuss upcoming events, ongoing initiatives and give Eclipse IoT projects the opportunity to share updates with the community.

We use a publicly available document to manage the meeting's [agenda](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZPG3uQ92nreVPpJQf80iJ4fQj-qMR7vLOAkuFNW-Xws/edit). You can add items to it anytime. One week before the scheduled time for the meeting, we run a survey among community members to determine the priority of the points found in the agenda.

If you use Google Calendar, you can add the invite to your calendar by clicking this [link](https://calendar.google.com/event?action=TEMPLATE&tmeid=N21odWZnbnZldmc0dG1sdTUwOG43ZWQ0YjBfMjAyMDAzMTBUMTYwMDAwWiB1NWo2OHM3MTByZXFtcjM3dmQ3OGpkbGJtNEBn&tmsrc=u5j68s710reqmr37vd78jdlbm4%40group.calendar.google.com&scp=ALL).

### Virtual IoT Meetup

The [Virtual IoT Meetup](https://www.meetup.com/Virtual-IoT/)is a community regrouping IoT enthusiasts from all around the world dedicated to discussing and discovering technologies that will make it easier for them to create IoT applications. We hosted [dozens of webinars](https://www.meetup.com/Virtual-IoT/events/past/) in the past, discussing a wide array of IoT-related topics related to the Eclipse ecosystem or not.

Do you wish to present at a future Virtual IoT meetup? Drop us a line at iot@eclipse.org.
