6 Qualities Of A Great PHP Developer


php developer dallas txIf it’s time to find a PHP developer who can create an attractive and easy-to-use website for your business, it’s important that you know how to separate the great developers from the average ones. Frankly, you don’t have to know much about computers or programming to know how to find the right person to work with; you just have to know the kinds of qualities it takes to complete your project on time and the right way.  Here are 6 things to look for:

1 – A Positive Attitude

No matter how big or small your business is, you want to know that the PHP developer you work with is enthusiastic about creating the perfect website for you. He must care about your product, be positive and be willing to go above and beyond to get results you (and he) are satisfied with.

2 – Great Communication Skills

A developer may know everything there is to know about website creation but if he can’t communicate what he knows to you, in a way you can understand, then you’ll always feel left out of the process. A great developer must be able to understand problems you want solved and propose solutions to you in a coherent manner.

3 – Excellent Time Management

Getting a website up and running quickly is something every business owner wants, though it isn’t always realistic.  When you give your PHP developer reasonable time goals, he should be able to accomplish those goals without constant reminders.  A great developer has a strong work ethic and will work hard to keep you informed, meet with you when necessary and complete his work.

4 – The Ability To Learn Quickly

Though your developer may know a lot, he can’t know everything.  That’s why it’s important that he be able to think on the fly and be willing to try new technology that he isn’t familiar with.  A great developer will find different resources, talk to the right people and find the best solution.

5 – Broad Technical Experience

Beware the developer who only knows one way of doing things.  A great developer has broad, and deep, experience in a number of technologies, especially those that are relevant to creating your website.  Because he will have the experience he needs, he’ll be able to hit the ground running on your project.

6 – End-User Focus

Keeping his eye on the end-user experience is what really separates a great developer from a good or average one.  An average developer does just what is asked of him; but a great developer thinks about the person who is going to be using the website he’s creating and he works to solve problems before they arise.  In addition, he wants to know that any features he’s asked to incorporate into your website are of high value and he’ll push back against features that are of no value.
