thanks for sharing your story. passion is the key.
i think your genuine message is that it is important to love what you do. dismissing education in the subtitle seems out of line however. there are a lot of things quite broken with android development and with software development in general. so many wheels from the last century have been reinvented or reinvented badly in the current at scale ecosystem. reading between the lines, yes, the lack of education and scholarship is the likely cause. just diving into the status quo is challenging and profitable but isn’t going to get us to where we could go.
