Theme Developer

I’m coming from the PHP and Laravel world but recently got a WordPress client.

I login to wp-admin and do most things from here – occasionally I do some CSS in YellowPencil or Appearance. Sometimes I ssh into the server to do some settings.

I am trying to learn more about wordpress development. But I’m overwhelmed with the terminology – blocks, themes, plugins, API development.

Am I what is called a “theme developer”? Because I work with pages, blocks, navigation, to make the site work? When I look for resources, should I look for resources regarding theme development?
