The hunt for a decent Drupal developer has never been a child’s play. One, because Drupal in itself is a complex tool that requires a high-end expertise and hence Drupal developers are less in number as compared to others. And second, one also has to be technically literate to a certain extent, in order to sense their expertise and hire accordingly. 

 

Well, you need not be scared, if you aren’t that well-versed about the tech-world. Especially, when you have AddWeb Solution to your rescue. We, being a pack of powerful Drupal-ers since 2012 and currently ranked at the 24th position in the marketplace of Drupal Service Provider, you know that you can put faith in our words. And as always, we’re more than happy to guide you through your search of a good Drupal developer.

 

Let us share a few pointers that have to be on your checklist while shortlisting a Drupal developer for yourself.

 

1) Profile on Drupal community:
What better recommendation of a Drupal developer than the one coming from Drupal’s official website itself?! And guess what, Drupal doesn’t bluff! It purely works on the merit basis, where the Drupal developers’ activeness in the community and their contribution is displayed. If one doesn’t have a profile on Drupal Community, you know you’ve to think twice before hiring them! 

 

2) Certification:
“Skills, not degrees, take you far.” True. But when in the ever-changing techno-world, you can’t shun the significance of certificates that these software companies give. So, if you come across a certified Drupal developer by Acquia, you know you’ve found the best champ to hire.

 

3) Work Profile:
Remember, that work speaks for itself! Well, don’t let some fraud deceive you with pretty presentations and flattery words. Ask for their work profile and invest your time and energy over analyzing them. And you’ll soon be a judge yourself, whether to trust the person or not. No wonder why a lot of companies goes all boastful about their clientele. 

 

4) Coding Languages:
“The more the merrier” is the mantra you need to follow while choosing a Drupal Developer with the knowledge of multiple coding languages. Since Drupal is built with the PHP language, it becomes mandatory for a Drupal developer to be well-versed in it. But knowing just PHP is also not enough, he needs to be multilingual when it comes to coding languages; majorly, SQL, MYSQL, JQuery, et al. And of course, not to forget ‘English’. It may not have any technical benefit attached to it, but it will surely enhance your communication with him!

 

5) Activeness on Drupal Community:
Drupal is a high-end open-source content-management framework, which is available free of cost. But the prominent reason behind its growth and flourishment is its community. People from all across the world, gather-up here and share their knowledge and queries here. A Drupal developer’s activeness here in this community also speaks for the wealth of his Drupal-related knowledge.

 

There may not be a guaranteed checklist to help you hire only the best of Drupal developers, but a few tips like these can always prevent you from a disastrous selection. And in case, you’re still stuck in your search; remember, our super-skilled Drupal developer’s team is just a call away! 

 

May you have a happy ride, searching a decent Drupal developer!
