Indeed, there is growing interest in hobby robotics as a literal "nuts and bolts" environment. But there are also moves by Microsoft and other large companies, to introduce very complex and large software tools into robotics. They claim these are "efficient" tools, but their motives are simply to grab market share with tools that you can't escape from. Whereas, if you know the fundamentals, and your tools are fundamental, you can always use other tools or adapt YOUR tools for other purposes. Knowing the basics makes you flexible, and I'd argue flexibility is still an advantage today.
I have a special sympathy for sufferers of a particular human problem, and I get more emails about it than just about any other topic.

Prevailing wisdom claims that the best way to achieve what we want in life—getting into better shape, building a successful business, relaxing more and worrying less, spending more time with friends and family—is to set specific, actionable goals.
We started different projects inside Zexler. Anyway, all of them were made for profit. A matter of monetization was delayed and it caused fading and giving up. According to our experience, if a project doesn’t make a profit (even a bit) at the beginning, it will break down soon. Therefore, we decided to think of monetization while developing Pixiko. It was supposed to make a little profit even at the beginning.
