How to create an Active Record style PHP SDK Part 15

Last week we looked at building out the functionality to serialise model objects into JSON that can be sent to the CapsuleCRM API.

How to create an Active Record style PHP SDK Part 14

Last week we started looking at adding the functionality to persist entities to the API. Part of the beauty of the Active Record pattern is how easy it is to persist records to the data store.

An important concept in Domain Driven Design is the modelling of domain logic in Entities and Value Objects. As we’ve seen over the last couple of weeks, we can use Value Objects and Entities to model and protect the business logic of our applications.

How to create an Active Record style PHP SDK Part 12
