This article speaks of how to do WordPress theming.

There are basically 6 important files inside a WordPress theme folder namely:

header.php

index.php

Header.php as its name suggests will contain the codes for the header section and is important part of WordPress theming. You can also create several header.php with different names like header_inner.php etc As you might be knowing meta tags, head tag and stylesheets, fonts etc get defined in header. You can grab a copy of twentytwelve WordPress theme to understand this portion.
