About This Episode

Extracting value objects, when appropriate, can be a useful technique for cleaning up messy classes. Use a simple metric: if you find multiple pieces of behavior that surround a single primitive or value, consider a value object. Please note that developers often have a tendency to "value object all the things," so be careful. Refactor toward value objects, rather than adopting them by default for every possible value.
