Should you develop sections or just code the main theme file?

Hi, my name is Arnes and I am currently learning Shopify liquid because I want to become a front end web developer, and make stores on Shopify. So my questions is, when you are making a store for a client do you usually make sections first then add them to the main theme so they are customizable inside shopify store, or do you just code everything directly into the main file so if the client wanted to change something he wont be able to do it trough shopify customizer but he would have to change it in the code. Or is that based on the client and if he will make changes in the future?

This is an accepted solution.

You should create sections.

There are several advantages like the ability to turn on/off the section, reorder and ease of customization. 

Hardcoded values are never a good choice on the long run

Finally—Add variant descriptions to your products
