Well your prayers have been answered in the form of a brand new internet television show named Coding Green Robots.

They cater to all audiences from the most experienced developers to those that haven’t written an app in their life. Matthew Patience and Greg Carron of Mobicartel Development are the hosts of CGR (Coding Green Robots) and are very passionate about what they do. The show is filmed in 2 hour episodes that air every other Tuesday in which they, teach top-notch development tutorials, provide open source code samples, discuss the latest Android Development news, and conduct guest interviews.
