    Sounds great. A couple of little requests:
    1. Explanation of the Android file/directory tree and related storage conventions
    2. A quick tour through a "Hello, world" app, starting off with simple text display, then adding a couple of widgets eg an input field, a button to send that input to a web app, an output field to display the result.
