The pentagon of entity modelling

I recently read an article by Matt Ricard about the “Heptagon of Configuration” in which he discussed how configurations evolve in a cycle.

It struck me that there’s another thing that follows a similar routine — entity attributes. Entity attributes often grow into complete systems in their own right.

  • Tax number grows into tax records and engines.
  • boolean flags grow into multi-valued state machines etc
