Thank you so much dear Abdelrhman,
Yeah I'm also not into learning all these stuff, but If I want to work on freelance route I have to learn WP, and you can achieve bootstrap effects just with pure CSS and Js and for sure there's no need for a front end developer to know about Sketch or Photoshop becuz that's UI designer's task.
But the problem is that employers demand it, and if we look at some frontend job listings, almost all of them listed bootstrap and some mentioned Photoshop/sketch
The other day I had a customer in freelancing market and he didn't have a design but wanted design and code altogether. So I told him it's two different tasks and areas done with two different people and he replied that every other developer in the industry that he had talked with would do the design task too!
Not surprisingly, I couldn't get the job :D
I mean that although you and I have same meaning for someone as a front end developer, the market demands more of us and that takes huge time and making it harder to move forward.
