Ok, why are coding bootcamps even a topic here? Well, Google more or less popularized this shit with the Associate Android Developer program back in 2016. The certificate was then sold as an extra qualification to people desperately looking for things to plump up their resume with, was quite obviously an attempt to build a low cost labor pool of Android developers with micro degrees and in reality only attested that you could “program” by copy&paste.

So, show of hands please, who else thinks that the Android ecosystem consists dominantly of questionable apps that look like they were cobbled together cheaply?
