If you’ve ever wanted to build your own theme for WordPress, this is the session for you! We’re going to start from scratch and work our way up. This tutorial assumes HTML and CSS knowledge, though there is no level of PHP requirement. We’ll go through all of the core files needed for a theme; some supplemental features that can be added; and how themes should be structured for clients, public free release, and sales sites. We’re going to briefly demonstrate how to add features for the WordPress Customizer and Gutenberg editor. We’ll also cover some tools that can help with your theme development.
