Understanding Sitecore templates will probably be your first challenge. In every other CMS system, a template is something that is usually associated with an object that defines how something will look, normally a page that can be created within the editor.. however, in Sitecore, this isn't' the case.
When I first started to work with Sitecore, I found it easier to refer to templates as data-templates instead. A Sitecore template has the same concept as a class in.NET. It's an object that you use to define something. Like C# classes, templates are made up of fields. These fields can be text, numbers, dates, rich-text etc...
Templates are the building blocks of every Sitecore project. Unlike the normal CMS terminology, a Sitecore template represents the data items that define the properties of our pages and renderings. In today's tutorial, I'm going to cover the how to create a template in Sitecore and use it on your website.
