Let's first unveil some directories to get you going. Open the following directories in your Magento root and do get nosy:

Directory 1: app/design/frontend/default/default/ — This directory contains the layout, translation (locale) and template materials.
Directory 2: skin/frontend/default/default/ — This directory contains the images, CSS and block-specific Javascripts.

When working with themes, these two directories will remain your base starting point.

If you're a starter, dont go for magento. That's too complex, it uses MVC.

If you are belonging to computer science department then it will be easy for you to understand the coding part of Magento. But for that you have to know some basics of pHp. Even if you have the knowledge of basic C language then also you can understand how to design themes on Magento. Other than that all is available in Google. You can easily check out from there. It will help you in getting complete knowledge of it.

Hi,
Magento has earned a reputation for being one of the most flexible and powerful eCommerce platforms out there today. This will include displaying featured products on the homepage and how to load JavaScript in the footer.
