I am looking for accelerated online training to be able to create a theme /package in version 1.9.

I already have a responsive HTML design, and I can develop in quite a few different languages - but I am not overly familiar with the Magento framework ( I have done bits and pieces with version 1.3 - and I know the basic structure. )

I looked at U Magento - but I find it a bit confusing and more focused on version 2 ( and not sure which ones to take exactly).

I definitely need Magento v.1.x as I have quite a few extensions that have a lifetime upgrade for version 1 and payment gateways etc are not available for v. 2.

I would prefer video-based, although a concise step by step guide to get a theme up and running would be really great.

thanks for your time, your help is greatly appreciated.

To create a new or child theme we must understand the theme fall back rule of Magento.

How fallback works in Magento 1.9.x ?
