So , any recommendations on resources for learning stuff like C++, Make and other useful programming tools? I only know Java/Kotlin Android stuff. I want to at least be able to read and understand Bitcoin Core code.

There are so many projects, I get totally overwhelmed trying to figure out which does what, and how they relate to each other.

Can anyone point me to some material on how to compile Bitcoin Core myself?

This Mastodon thing indeed feels like a smaller community. Really liking it so far, thx @nvk for the instance and @waxwing for the reminder last weekend.
