How To Find The Perfect CodeIgniter Developer?

CodeIgniter is one of the most popular PHP-based frameworks. The framework not only brings together, the advantages of a framework (ie easy and quick development) with the flexibility of the PHP programming language, but also offers advantages such as:

  • The ability to create the front-end and back-end of a web application
  • A hassle-free server migration
  • The ability to create large web applications in a short period of time.
  • An introduction of a new functionality without affecting the customization.
  • Quality collection of possessed libraries

While the compelling advantages of the framework make it an ideal choice for web development projects, it is, however, worthy to note that these advantages can be fully tapped only by a perfect CodeIgniter Developer, who can be found with a mix of efforts and know-how. Let us discuss how to find the perfect developer(s):

Evaluate With A Test

If you have a lead developer in your team, let them evaluate a developer with technical questions. Additionally, give them a small CodeIgniter Development task and see how fast are they able to accomplish it and the quality of code written.

Look For Experience

If you do not have a technical person on your team, no troubles! Just go out and look for an experienced individual or team. Experience offers a certain mark of trust. An experienced developer is more likely to deliver work with efficiency than a novice one. When checking the experience of a team, do not just consider the overall years of experience of a team, rather see how many years of experience the existing team members possess.

Check Previous Work

Check the portfolio of a team/individual. See if they’ve done anything similar to your project requirements before as that is more likely to ensure success. Also, check the number of projects accomplished and their quality.

Take Feedback From Former Clients

Don’t just trust client’s reviews on the internet. Directly talk to their former clients and take feedback. Find out if the team delivered the work the client expected? If they were available for making amends? If they accomplished the work in the expected timeframe or not?

Only a perfect developer can utilize the full potential of a technology, making it imperative for a project leader to find the best ones for their project. Implementing the above-mentioned steps are most likely to render a list of some good CodeIgniter Developer(s). However, the final selection must be based on a project’s budget.
