Value Objects with PHP 8.1

PHP has introduced a number of new features that allow you to write awesome Value Objects with PHP 8.1. In this post you will learn about each feature and how to put them all together.

Back in the dark ages of 2016, shortly after PHP 7.0 was released, I wrote a Missing In PHP 7 blog post series. Four of the five posts describe functionality that is no longer missing, as of PHP 8.1 or earlier. Missing in PHP7: Value objects is one of those posts.
