Time: 19:00 – 21:00 CET (UTC+1)
Location: Zoom Meeting
– Meeting ID: 968 5082 6494
– Passcode: 391117

As we still can’t meet for a stream of “Heyyy-long-time-no-see” chats or getting to know each other in person, we’re going to meet at the virtual hotel bar. Just BYOB, drop by and say hi!

If you feel the urge, feel free to wander off into a breakout session and discuss your IoT projects in detail. Though initiated for the IoT WG, the hotel bar is, of course, open to anyone in the RIPE community!
