Starting to learn Android Development

Hello Everyone!
Sophomore year of my college has ended and summer vacations have started. My goal is simple: to learn Android Development and start freelancing/internships/remote work to become financially independent by the end of this year. I know it is not going to be easy, and there is a chance of failing, but I think it is worth giving a shot.

Till now, I know Java. I have solved several leetcode questions in Java to get an idea of various data structures and algorithms. I also know a little bit of HTML, CSS and Javascript (I know these are not useful in Android Development). Since the beginning of May, I tried learning Kotlin, and now I am pretty comfortable coding in Kotlin.

I will be sharing my daily progress here on dev.to. My goal is to get comfortable with the basics by the end of May and start learning advanced concepts & building portfolio of applications in June.

Right now I am following this playlist I found on YouTube:

Please tell me if you know any better resources(free, as I cannot afford any paid resources right now as my financial condition is also not good). I mostly prefer video resources but document based resources are also fine.

Thanks for Reading!!!
