Could not have said it better !

As I use OSGEO tools and OpenStreetMap database on a daily basis, I 
could not be more happy if the two of us join our forces !

Maë//e told us you use you wiki page for your events : 
If you agree, I'll add your OSGEOBE events to Maptime Belgium 
(http://maptime.io/belgium/) starting by next OSGEODevEvening !

And I could help with events about web cartography (OpenLayers, Leaflet, 
MapServer, ...).
