Concrete5 is a package dedicated to web pages being designed expressed for a cellphone. The small screen size is the biggest constraint. You can treat concrete5 as a real alternative to WordPress or Wix. While those are quite popular they are meant for a typical laptop or desktop screen. The concept of a theme, like it being a template, should be readily apparent to similar usages in WordPress, for example.
In keeping with the spirit of the small screen, must of the book shows a straightforward user interface for inputting HTML elements onto the window. In concrete5, you live mostly within the GUI provided. Actual typing of HTML tags is deprecated. With one major exception. There are PHP code snippets scattered throughout. But they are largely self explanatory, even if you do not know PHP. It still will benefit you if you already have PHP, if you need to customise a theme.
Now there is one major difference between a page you write in concrete5 and an HTML page you might have explicitly written elsewhere. In concrete5, the parts of a page come from a content management system database. Dynamic web pages. There is actually a lot that happens when you perhaps unwittingly load a concrete5 page. You don't need to know much or any of this to code in concrete5. Just think of it as background.
