Skills required:
- C
- Java
- Git
- Bash
- Brain + Google

Simplified vision of android:Hardware < Kernel Linux < Hardware Abstraction Layer < Android

Porting: Working kernel + HAL

Tips & Tricks:
- Hack current projects. This way allow you to learn and not care about unnecessary stuff e.g. If I improve Ambient Sensor Light driver, is not necessary that I understand how is working android build system.
- Logcat
