Kevin Schroeder' Blog:
Getting good PHP programmers
November 16, 2010 @ 10:15:40

Kevin Schroeder has posted some of his thoughts how how you, the one looking for good PHP developers, can really get the best talent out there you can find based on his experiences in interviewing other developers.

I can interview for certain (but by no means all) PHP positions because I know a fair about PHP and I believe that being smart but being an asshole does not make you a good PHPer. But not everyone who interviews knows that. And not only that, it is getting difficult to find good PHP developers. A lot of the good ones are being taken up by top companies, but even they are having trouble finding all the good developers they need.

He suggests coming up with something a bit more concrete than just this vague picture of what a "good PHP developer" is and how, even once that's defined, the quality of all developers should be raised to that level. He asks for some feedback on a few related questions like: is there really a shortage of good PHP developers or what are the significant topic areas that PHP developers should know well? Lease him some feedback on the post.
