Separation of Concerns (SoC), you have probably heard of this term already. In short, it is an important design principle in which you separate your code into individual distinct sections. A piece of software that has a good SoC is normally referred to as being modular. Modular code has the benefits of being reusable, easier collaboration, better testability, easier controlling of application scope, and so on. A great way of ensuring modularity in your code is by implementing the Command Pattern.

(Though I do still like using Micro ORMs as you’ll see)
