Here are my notes about creational design patterns with PHP examples.

Design Patterns # Creational image 1

1- Singleton Pattern: Involves a single class that is responsible to create an object while making sure that only a single object gets created.

2- Builder Pattern: The main purpose of the Builder design pattern is to separate the construction of a complex object from its representation.

3- Simple Factory Pattern: A basic factory class that has a method and this method returns different types of objects based on the given input.

4- Abstract Factory Pattern: This lets you produce families of related objects without specifying their concrete classes.

5- Static Factory Pattern: Used to create a series of related or dependent objects.

6- Factory Method Pattern: Known as Virtual Constructor.

This pattern provides an interface for creating objects in a superclass, but allows subclasses to alter the type of objects that will be created.

Here is a good example.

7- Prototype Design Pattern: The main purpose of this pattern is to avoid the cost of creating new objects. With this pattern, we are trying to clone an object instead of creating a new one.

8- Pool Design Pattern: The main purpose of this pattern is storing initialized objects in a pool and when they are ready just use these ones. This avoids allocating and destroying costs.

You can check a worker example with this gist.

Also, you can check this example.
