Official Sitecore development guidelines and recommended practices

We created Helix to deliver recommended practices, guidelines, and conventions on how to code in Sitecore, and built Habitat to provide an example solution built upon Helix conventions and principles.

Helix

A set of guidelines describing the application of the overall design principles you should apply to a Sitecore project, Helix helps you ensure business objectives are implemented in a future-proof way. Helix helps you architect the implementation as maintainable and extensible business-centric modules. Learn more

Habitat

A real Sitecore project implemented on the Sitecore® Experience Platform™ using Helix, Habitat lets you see how Helix should be applied and experience a project based on these principles. It also provides an excellent basis on which to develop additional modules and extend existing ones—which saves you having to create these modules from scratch. Learn more

You likely already know there’s more to development than coding with best practices. The end result needs to deliver business value and address real marketing and IT challenges.
