Are you looking for a PHP web developer in India to build your website? Here’s some useful information for you.
In this blog post, we have shared 5 questions based on our web development experience of more than a decade, that you must ask before you hire a PHP developer in India.
Hope you will find it useful.
#1 How much experience do you have?
Believe it or not, when it comes to website development, experience is very important.
A PHP developer with experience of more than 3-4 years can create your website in a more professional way, than a developer who is inexperienced or less experienced.
An experienced website developer who has worked on more than dozens of websites knows the kind of challenges he or she may expect before even starting any website. Therefore, they can consider enough time buffers, contingencies, and other risk factors during the initial stage of web development.
Of course, when hiring an experienced PHP developer, you may need to pay a bit more than what you had paid if you would have hired an inexperienced developer. But this investment is really worth it.
You can also consider hiring an experienced PHP developer in India who can help you to build your website at a low cost.
#2 Can I see your portfolio?
Although the experience of a PHP developer matters a lot, without enough portfolio, it may become irrelevant.
Why is it so?
There are several PHP web developers who do have years of experience but ironically they haven’t worked on more than a couple of websites. It could be because of their projects’ size or the employer’s priorities.
Therefore, before you hire a PHP developer in India, do check their web development portfolio, especially PHP websites.
#3 Can we talk?
For any website development project to be successful, effective communication between you and your website developer is the key.
If a web developer is not able to communicate with you properly, he or she may not be able to understand your project requirements correctly. Due to the lack of project understanding, you may not get what you want.
What’s more. Lack of communication may also result in:
- Delay in project completion.
- Conflicts & disputes.
- Waste of money & time.
Do not let this happen to you.
Before you hire a PHP developer in India, do arrange a call and talk to your developer to ensure that he or she understands your project correctly.
#4 Do you know CSS?
Some web developers may not agree with this point.
In fact, most web developers think that their job is just to code. They do not worry about the look or design of the website. Rather they consider that a website designer is the one who must take care of all the design aspects.
Technically speaking, it may be correct but practically, it’s wrong.
A PHP developer who doesn’t know how to manage CSS codes may end up delivering unacceptable work or delay your project completion. The reason is that these kinds of developers will always blame web designers for all the design discrepancies, instead of being proactive to fix these minor issues themselves.
So, as a rule of thumb, you must be sure that your shortlisted PHP developer does have CSS skills before you hire him.
#5 How much do you charge?
Of course, all other qualities of a PHP developer mentioned above are important before you hire them, but at the end of the day, you must take care of your web development budget too.
Especially, when you consider hiring a PHP developer in India, you must expect to build your website at an affordable cost.
Although, the cheapest is always not the best, the best is also not always expensive too.
Once you have shortlisted your PHP developer based on the above qualities mentioned from point #1 to point #4, you must compare their quotations too.
Needless to mention, you must go with the developer or web development agency in India, that has quoted the best price.
