Default How to... be a dev? Beginner in the middle of nowhere...

Hello, first ill introduce myself. so Ive been in love with linux since my mom got her first linux based phone (palm pre) and then i quickly learned about androids, another os that was also linux based, to the best of my knowledge. Having, as my cousin says, 'abnormal skills' with pcs i decided to search for android rooting and dev. I found this site, been a great help, and it increased my love for androids. Recently though, ive been trying to root a phone. Now i know i can just google the phone and type root and ill find out how. But what im tryingto learn is how to do that myself. What do i need to know to be a dev like playfulgod, mtmichealson, musclenerd and all such people, that can figure out how to root a device and build roms for androids? And possibly where could i learn these things? Sorry if theres already a post like this out there, i couldnt find anything, and sorry for the long post. Thank you for all who answer me.
Im sorry if this is in the wrong,

There is plenty of info on Android's website. You'll find lots of info and plenty of tutorials. You will definitely need a powerful pc if you wish to start compiling apps and roms though.

Welcome to Android | Android Open Source

There is also this "kitchen" for modifying existing ROMs (good way to get started)
