    If you're planning to stick with Wordpress, Python doesn't seem particularly useful.

    PHP, javascript, and CSS are all useful for developing Wordpress sites, and a seasoned Wordpress developer would want to have a working knowledge of all of them. If you're doing mostly front-end development, I'd probably start with CSS, then JS, then PHP.

    Just outta curiosity, how do you do 10 sites without knowing css?

    Like Khenney said theres no point in learning Python unless you plan to get away from WP. You won't be able to use it for the most part.

    Personally, if you have made 10 sites with no CSS my assumption is that you are just installing themes and plugins. Do you know HTML? Just asking since you don't know css. If I were you and you were serious about this as a career, I'd learn how to do it all on my own, without a theme and plugins. In all honesty I'd steer away from WP as well but thats on you.

    That's the joy of WordPress, Vapr_Arts. You really don't need to know much to use it. As soon as you gain knowledge, however, you hit the outer limits of WP and realize just how useless it is.

    Basically, "learn to code". It almost doesn't matter which language(s)/framework(s) you learn as long as you can apply knowledge. Some are better than others, though. PHP would be a start, but as soon as you learn a second server-side language you'll realize why PHP is ultimately destined for what the French call "la poubelle".

    On the contrary, you start to use it as a headless API, which it's surprisingly good at. Once you strip away all of the dumbness and bloatitude, it has a perfectly good API underneath. https://developer.wordpress.com/docs/api/

    Yes. All of this.
