This article describes a TDD (Test Driven Development) approach to implement a Finite State Machine (FSM) using PHP+Laravel. However, such method is general and could be used in the programming language of your choice.
In the previous article TDD IMPLEMENTATION OF FINITE STATE MACHINE (FSM) WITH LARAVEL I discussed a basic approach for implement a Finite State Machine (FSM) on a Laravel model. In this article I will further discuss the topic by applying a more engineered approach. It involves the usage of the State pattern
This tutorial describes a TDD approach to refactor code to Strategy pattern. Starting from working code and some test, refactoring steps are applied to obtain cleaner code
LaravelVisitor is a Visitor Design Pattern implementation for Laravel. It allows to easily execute processing of collections of arbitrary elements, without requiring to use repeated conditionals, thus improving code abstraction.
Very often you find yourself in situations where you need to make your data pass some kind of checks or filters before doing something with them. This post shows how to make a first attempt approach better and cleaner
This article describes a way of implementing Strategy design pattern using a database-based runtime configuration. The approach allows to dynamically (re)configure class behavior without requiring code-based rearrangements.
