Participate in a W3C Community or Business Group
Interested in building community around a Web technology? W3C has created Community Groups and Business Groups so that developers, designers, and anyone passionate about the Web has a place to have discussions and publish documents. Community Groups are designed to promote innovation and to lower barriers to individual participation, and are:
- open to all
- without fee
- quick to start
- without time limit
- IPR balanced (Royalty-Free Patent Policy, permissive Copyright)
...and more! As for Business Groups, they provide companies anywhere in the world with access to the expertise and community needed to develop open Web technology.
A slide presentation introduction to Community and Business Groups is available.
W3C Members lead the development of Web standards and work with technology leaders in a respected, vendor-neutral forum. Learn how your organization can take a Web leadership role as a W3C Member or participate in a way best-suited to your organization's needs.

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is the leading international forum for the technical development and stewardship of the Web. The W3C community creates open standards that define how the Web works. These include standards for technology and best practices such as HTML, XML, CSS, VoiceXML, and WCAG. Created in 1994 by Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the Web, W3C seeks to build the open Web platform, whose benefits extend to all people, on any device, anywhere.
