    Hello,

    You'll definitely need to learn HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP and SQL with the MySQL database - I'd suggest learning them in that order.

    The codex has all of the Wordpress specific information you'll need
    http://codex.wordpress.org/

    No professionals use it.

    Write your code by hand in a good text editor like textmate or sublime.

    You can't avoid learning those languages if you want to be a web developer working with Wordpress.

    Well, for wordpress developer you have to learn HTML and CSS. HTML and CSS are both most popular and easy to use because both are basic language of web design. So many web design tips, tricks and articles are available on the web for learning HTML and CSS. Important to note that the WordPress has been developed in HTML, so it is advisable to learn HTML and CSS as a WordPress Developer.

    No it has not. Of course, each webpage of a WP site (like any webpage of any site) is made of HTML/CSS code. But WP has been developed in PHP/Mysql.

    Hello guido,
    What is the difference between between making and developing? Please explain. If I want to make some WP templates do I have to apply pHp?Mysql ?

    If you want to develop WP plugins, you need PHP (and maybe MySQL).
    If you want to develop WP themes, you need HTML/CSS and probably Javascript, and you need to know how to put the WP specific commands in there (and I guess some PHP knowledge may be useful for that).

    I'd say you might want to start reading the WP theme development documentation: http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development
    And if you google for it, I'm sure you'll find lots of beginner tutorials for WP theme development.

    I've been using eclipse with PDT for quite some time now. Notepad++ is also a good text editor (for the windows platform)

    I haven't touched Dreamweaver in years. For design work, I typically use a text editor (notepad++, or Aptana, which also uses eclipse) and the firebug extension for each browser.

    You cannot develop a WordPress theme without at least knowing the basics of PHP, as has been said here numerous times. As Mark said, you need a solid understanding of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP. A basic understanding of SQL would be optimal, but for a basic theme, I'd say it's not needed, whereas having a solid understanding in HTML, CSS, and a basic understanding in PHP and JavaScript are definitely a requirement, not an option.
