I think it's cool you're learning more about computers.

This is really boring as sin

yeah, you gotta have just the right level of brain damage to enjoy it. I recommend several months of total isolation from the rest of humanity, and a belief that being good at computers is a competition with others.

Most people start with game making b/c it's more "fun". Assuming you aren't just a gimmick. If you learn how to do little stuff with unity I think you can make it into an .apk you can attempt to use to get the kind of encouragement to keep going.

I have the isolation on lock

It's important it's voluntary isolation. The kind that comes from the sort of neurosis/perfectionism that keeps you from giving up when your code doesn't do what it's supposed to do and you get frustrated.

A lot of people think state mandated covid isolation ticks this box, but I respectfully disagree.

It's also harder to get into these days. I had a lot of encouragement as a kid to learn technology from adults that realized they could just ask me to do things for them if they praised me for how good I was with technology.

You just don't get that kind of reinforcement today.

Welcome to Data Science! Focus on the infrastructure part IMO because feature engineering has you competing against people with Masters+ degrees in math. There's still a huge talent gap for engineers who can build Data Science pipelines that automate gathering data, rebuilding models, and then updating the prod code with new models. Very wild west there still.

Holy poo poo, the jobs are real?

If something pays well, it either has a really high bar to entry or most people can't stand doing it.

Think about how useful being able to individually massage values and modify methods in getting something like Aduhelm through a fraught approval process, or hide the fact risperdal causes boys to grow boobs.

Do it man. If the dress code allows knee length hems on dresses/skirts get yourself a skort and just do it. They even make cargo skorts
