Salam alikoum,

It's nice to see a tech company from Morocco that helps developers.
At this moment I'm too busy (my job, children, private projects), but I 
would like to organize something where students, developers, engineers 
and other intellectual people come together and think about starting 
projects that would benefit all Moroccans in Morocco as well as outside 
of Morocco.
One of the things I have in mind is OpenStreetMap, but it could be more:
- OpenStreetMap, free (and free from license) digital map of Morocco.
- Sustainable Energy or Green Energy from the sun or wind using solar 
systems to generate electricity, or hot water.
- Electronic systems based on free hardware and software for education, 
for farmers and so on...
- OpenBSC/OpenBTS for free gsm communication in small villages

For example, how can we prevent many car accidents in Morocco. Every 
time I turn on the TV a terrible car or bus accident happened.
One of the solutions, besides better driving schools, is to develop 
electronic systems analyzing/checking the traffic situation and so on...

Inchallah these developments will soon come.
