Commands and Domain Events

As you advance in your career, you'll quickly fall into the "sequential tasks" trap. "I need to do these ten things when a user signs up.... but I have no idea where to place this logic." Many times, we give up and simply throw it in the controller. But is that the best place? Might there be a better way (when appropriate) to structure our applications? Sure! Let me show you.

    The Command Bus

    Now that we have our first command object, we next need to calculate the appropriate handler class, which will delegate, as needed. Let's tackle that in this episode. Go sports!

    Command Handlers

    So we've successfully translated a command into its associated handler class. In this lesson, we'll delegate, as needed, to post the job listing - while raising domain events in the process.

    Extracting a Composer Package

    Now that our review of commands and domain events is complete, let's extract a Composer package, so that we can reuse this logic across all new projects! See the completed package on GitHub!
