You know, I love Eloquent so much! It provides very elegant way to link you database to models. And it does a lot of things for you too, for example:
- guessing table name by class name;
- guessing which field should be used for foreign keys.
Have you ever wondered, how much overhead do these things create? I did. And I figured it out with table name case (I guess should be similar with foreign key column guessing. Take a look at my experiment!
TL;DR: It is worth.
