Did you fire up a Java IDE the very moment Android hit the market — ready to start creating amazing apps? Have you spent far too many hours delving into details of Android on all kinds of devices, figuring out how to build apps that are beautiful, elegant, and work well for all your users? Have you reverse-engineered one (or several) Android APIs, figuring out how to do things that weren’t documented because, well, it was the right thing for the app to do? Can you rhapsodize at length on the right internal architecture for an Android app of a particular sort?
