Of course wp dev entails knowledge of html css javascript PHP and mysql as well as knowledge of the codex.

But could somebody please point me in the right direction to learn specifically how I can create theme options in the admin panel so a user could change the colours of text and headers for example or having a slider on the home page.

Is there a concise set of tutorials available or do I have to learn everything there is and work it out?

Thank you

I suggest using the Theme Customizer API.
