Hi all,

We really need an engineer to put in work for data.iRail.be: creating an
API for transport system in Belgium, from De Lijn, to TEC to NMBS to

In a second phase, we have this great idea to build this open source
extension which would allow to store user content: what is someone's
digital travel agenda, which train is (s)he checking in to, are there
friends/followers on the same train, what are the most-used bus stops, etc.

Would it be a good idea to try to raise 15.000 on a crowd funding platform?
We could create a video in one day with all the people involved in
transport applications in Belgium, who could use a common platform. These
user-data will be able to be re-used and shared between prochain bus,
iRail, BeTrains, RailerApp, Railmate, MIVBSTIB app, Railtime, and so on.

Have a look over here for an interesting crowd funding platform:


Kind regards,
