Hi Lorenz!

I would actually love to contribute to that course. I did some pretty
advanced stuff in Python to clean up and combine statistic and
geospatial data published by the cities of Vienna [0] and Berlin [1].

With people now being interested in databases and Python it would be a
pleasure for me to contribute on a topic like Python database
programming or howto properly handle spatial data in Python.
