Dear all,

We are organizing our first data expedition in Saudi Arabia later this
month. We have established a meetup for the same www.meetup.com/datageeks
and are looking for interesting real data sets that are good for beginners
to work on. There is data.gov.sa that is recently launched but the data is
mostly aggregated.
Any recommendations and suggestions in nurturing our baby community are
more than welcome!

Thanks in advance.
