[resolved] What do I need to know & where can I go to begin premium development of themes? (3 posts)

    Hi all,
    I've been using WordPress for a while now both for me and for my clients, but I am really interested in premium & free theme developments, it's something I would really love to learn how to do and am willing to dedicate my time to.

    So first, what languages do I need to know?
    I plan to sell premium themes, which I think makes it important to create themes that have features that interface & interact with WordPress. I have strong (award winning :) knowledge of HTML & CSS, but have not fully ever learned PHP. I'm not good with Javascript, and don't have a clue about AJAX. I feel like I have a lot to learn, but want a solid answer of what I need to learn based on what I said above.

    My second question is, where can I go to really learn how to begin making themes, more of a course-like enviroment (videos, and the such) not just some loosely laced together blog posts about it. If you know of a book, I'm all for it and I'm willing to pay for some courses (not Lynda.com outragous yearly or monthly plans) .

    Looking forward to your answers!
