Default themes

not many themes for kitkat 4.4.2. im a programmer but my only experience is classroom experience in collage and got my degree in programming and im a fast learner. my question is where can i get good instructions on creating my own themes? i never had mobile programming classes, i only had c++, cobal, visual basic, asp. net, html, and css. i dont know where start and what files in the android operating system to work with to do the changes.

I would suggest YouTube, it's the best easy to learn the android structure.

The best way for learning is reverse engineering ...
Download few themes, decompile them using APKtool and learn on them...

It's easiest to understand structure and code when you see them.

So, open all xml files with Notepad++ and , if you have all that knowledge, you'll see it's quite easy.
HTML is closest to xml code so you'll not have any problems
