I'm a native Android developer, and I really enjoy doing the work. However, I want to make sure that I'm well setup across my career overall - Does Android have good prospects in tech going forward? On a related note, how does it correlate to future opportunities and growth within Amazon?

    Yes, I do think Android has a long term future (more details in video). Specifically within Amazon, I think Android is core to where they'll see the most growth as a company: in developing regions such as India. In addition, I imagine a lot of the hardware efforts for Amazon have some overlap with Android technology. So even if Amazon stops investing in Android, you'll be well-equipped to have impact on these other team.
