As Matt says in the intro, his talk assumes you have never built a theme and are literally starting from scratch. You’ll be looking at a bit of PHP code and HTML/CSS, but nothing too complicated. Matt does a great job of walking through the basics of making your own WordPress theme.

Your completed theme at the end might not win any design awards – but it gives you a good overview of all the files and code that goes into a WordPress theme.
