Domain-Driven Laravel

Domain-Driven Laravel

Author: Jesse Griffin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/10/2020

Map concepts and ideas in domain-driven design (DDD) and transpose them into clean, testable, and quality code that is effective alongside the Laravel framework. This book teaches you how to implement the concepts and patterns present in DDD in the real world as a complete web application. With these tactics and concepts in place, you'll engage in a variety of example applications, built from the ground up, and taken directly from real-world domains. Begin by reviewing foundational stepping stones (with small, manageable examples to show proof of concepts as well as illustrations to conceptualize the more complex topics) of both DDD and Laravel. Specifically, such topics as entities, value objects, developing an ubiquitous language, DTOs, and knowledge discovery. Next, you will dive into some more advanced topics of DDD and use these concepts as a guide to make customizations to the default Laravel installation, giving you an understanding of why these alterations are vital to the DDD and Laravel platform. Finally, you will cover the very powerful Eloquent ORM that comes stock with Laravel and understand how it can be utilized to represent entities, handle repositories, and support domain events. Although there is a basic coverage chapter and a setup tutorial for Laravel (along with a high level intro about the components used within it), Domain-Driven Laravel is best suited to readers who have been at least exposed to the framework and have had the opportunity to tinker around with it. What You'll Learn Utilize a blazing-fast rapid development pipeline built from DDD building blocks and facilitated with Laravel Implement value objects, repositories, entities, anti-corruption layers and others using Laravel as a web framework Apply enhanced techniques for quick prototyping of complex requirements and quality results using an iterative and focused approach Create a base framework (Laravel) that can serve as a template to start off any project Gain insight on which details are important to a project's success and how to acquire the necessary knowledge Who This Book Is For Ideal for for frontend/backend web developers, devops engineers, Laravel framework lovers and PHP developers hoping to learn more about either Domain Driven Design or the possibilities with the Laravel framework. Those with a working knowledge of plain PHP can also gain value from reading this book.

Discover the concepts of creating dynamic web pages (HTML) with Python. This book reviews several methods available to serve up dynamic HTML including CGI, SSI, Django, and Flask. You will start by covering HTML pages and CSS in general and then move on to creating pages via CGI. It is easy to use and can serve as a foundation for the more advanced services available for launching dynamic web pages. Next you'll explore the SSI (Server Side Interface) method.

The book also covers some of the key the Django module features, which must be added to the web server. These features include creating dynamic web pages and calling a database to provide additional information to the web page. Lastly you will explore the Flask module. While it has limited functionality on its own, it provides a very flexible environment to create a self designed system for delivery of dynamic web pages. By the time you finish this book, you will be able to choose the appropriate methodology for delivering dynamic information using fast HTML creation services. What You'll Learn Use HTML pages and CSS together to control the style of your web site. Install and configure SSI, Django, and Flask for Apache. Create dynamic web pages using CGI and creating a library of partial HTML pages to use in this task. Build dynamic web pages using SSI and auxiliary Python programs to enhance the SSI functionality. Develop dynamic web pages using Django. Who This Book Is For Software Developers with basic Python programming skills interested in learning Web Development
