What topics would you like to learn?

Anything related to Android. Would love to get a better understanding of GridView and BaseAdapters. Very few examples implement the getItem method... most just return null. I want to have a checkbox in my GridView and I want the GridView to be part of a custom dialog. So the checkbox values are only accepted if the user clicks 'OK' on the dialog, if the user clicks 'Cancel' then the checkboxes should revert back to their previous values the next time that dialog is loaded.

What topics would you like to teach?

I can teach from my experiences... here is what I have done in a nutshell. I have designed my first app and deployed it. Not to the app store, but for a very specific use to about 20 Tablet devices. It uses customized ImageViews (that I draw on), Network Detection (for communicating with a server), dialogs, a custom WheelView (for more user friendly UI). My app is really dumb. It gets told what to display by the server for the most part. The server even tells it to display buttons or not, and what should happen when that button is clicked.
