When you are building REST APIs, why isn't this an issue for you? Do you have some examples where you can't use value objects over arrays?

Ah, I see what you mean. I was thinking more along the lines that I produce small APIs where I'm the only dev, but now I see it will help me if nobody else. 😊

Always consider that others could be involved in it some day. That helps to reflect your own work and will at least make it easier for you in the end if you have to look at that code after some months.

I personally always set the goal that I want to make a project open source available on github. That means that others will see this piece of code and they want to understand what I'm doing.

Yes, and even if not, it will help me when I have to debug things two months down the road. If I don't have explicit objects to look at, making an API request and examining the JSON is the only way. πŸ˜‚
