Do I need to learn PHP? Other questions...

Hi Envato Authors,

I have read all the WP requirements and I had a few questions:

  1. How much PHP do I need to know to get started developing WP templates.
  2. How is PHP used in WP templates.
  3. Good resources for learning how to develop WP themes and templates (YouTube, etc…)?
  4. Where do I start? UI/UX? Any tips and techniques or workflow would be very helpful.

WordPress uses its own PHP functions. So, it’ll be better looking other theme codes instead of trying to learn PHP-MySQL.
