How to Hire the Best CakePHP Developers

One of the most popular PHP open-source web frameworks, CakePHP is modelled after the framework Ruby on Rails and follows the MVC or Model-View-Controller pattern.

 

The framework began in 2005 by Polish programmer Michal Tatarynowicz who tried to write a simpler version of rapid application development in PHP, which he later called as Cake. In December during the same year, the Cake Software Foundation was founded by L. Masters and G. J. Woodworth to promote further development of the CakePHP framework. By May 2006, the first version of the framework was successfully released.

 

Today, CakePHP allows businesses and developers to quickly and easily build a web application, without using too much code. The framework utilises established software engineering concepts and designs, such as active record, front controller, and association data mapping among others, to create a powerful and flexible platform.

Why should you hire a CakePHP developer?

When you hire CakePHP developers, they can help you effectively and quickly develop a variety of web applications depending on your business or project requirements. Aside from these, your software development can experience the following benefits:

Build applications rapidly
CakePHP uses scaffolding and code generation features to quickly build prototypes.

 

No need for configuration
The framework does not require or feature complicated XML or YAML files. All you need is to set up your database and you can start building applications.

 

Comes with a friendly license
Its MIT license allows it to be used a variety of commercial applications.

 

Includes built-in features
Features such as translations, database access, validation, authentication and more are already built into the original PHP MVC frameworks.

 

Get clean MVC conventions
The framework guides its developers with a set of conventions when creating an application.

 

Secure
CakePHP also includes built-in tools for input validation, form tampering protection, SQL injection prevention, CSRF protection, and XSS prevention. The framework has also been audited through the Mozilla Secure Open Source program.

What technical skills should you look for when hiring CakePHP developers?

When hiring CakePHP developers, recruiters should know what to look for to effectively assess a developer’s technical capabilities. Aside from a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Information Technology, or any other related fields, here are the basic CakePHP developer skills that recruiters should look for when hiring CakePHP developers:

  • Strong knowledge and experience in the concepts, practices, and development in the PHP language and the CakePHP framework
  • Also adept in Core PHP, JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3,  jQuery, and MySQL
  • Understands security and accessibility compliance
  • Proficient in code versioning tools such as Git

Take note that these requirements may still vary depending on your project requirements.

What interview techniques should you use to hire the best CakePHP developers?

After posting CakePHP developers for hire, recruiters and employers should note and understand that the interview hiring process is meant to evaluate the skills of candidates, and not to intimidate them with challenging questions or tasks. As such, here are a few suggested interview and hiring methods that recruiters or employers can apply or ask to effectively and efficiently hire CakePHP developers.

 

Have them describe the structure of their recent project
One of the questions or tasks you can ask candidates is to have them describe the most recent project or software that they have finished. Recruiters or employers may provide a whiteboard or sheet of paper to have the candidates further illustrate and explain their project. With this activity, recruiters or employers can immediately determine two aspects:

One: employers can tell if a CakePHP developer to have a solid knowledge of content management systems and CakePHP’s platform. In addition, recruiters can check what other important skills or experience a candidate may possess that is not stated on their CV. This question allows employers to have a good grasp of the candidate’s involvement and commitment during the project.

 

Two: employers can identify if a developer has the ability to effectively communicate technical concepts. Consider this question: Would a non-technical person understand the technical concepts explained in the presentation? Aside from this, it’s also good to keep an eye on non-verbal cues (e.g. hand gestures, and maintained eye contact) when presenting and check for other important qualities such as confidence and good communication skills. If you are looking to hire a lead or senior developer, it is necessary to find someone with the ability to clearly simplify technicalities to a non-IT person.

 

Conduct technical tests
When businesses hire CakePHP developers, many would think that technical tests are a usual part of the hiring process. Unfortunately, this necessary step is often overlooked by most companies when hiring developers.

 

To properly evaluate good candidates from the rest, a technical test is necessary. One can use a free or paid online programming test to quickly and conveniently screen candidates thinks and works. When you hire the best CakePHP developers, you should hire developers who are not only expert programmers but also critical problem solvers.

 

If a technical test is not possible, recruiters may still ask candidates to write two to three sample codes or around five to ten lines. This should be enough to give employers and recruiters a quick insight into how a developer thinks and works, as well as his knowledge of the language.

 

Here is a quick sample test that you can ask your CakePHP candidate to code.

 

Q: Can you write a sample for a basic session usage.

A: 

$name = $this->request->session()->read('User.name');
// If you are accessing the session multiple times,
// you will probably want a local variable.
$session = $this->request->session();
$name = $session->read('User.name');

Q: Write sample pagination usage code in Controller. 

A:

class PostsController extends AppController
{
   public $paginate = [
      'limit' => 25,
      'order' => [
            'Posts.id' => 'desc'
      ]
   ];

   public function initialize()
   {
      parent::initialize();
      $this->loadComponent('Paginator');
      $this->loadHelper('Paginator', ['templates' => 'MyPlugin.paginator-templates']);
   }

   public function display(){
      $this->set('posts', $this->paginate());
   }
}

What is the dedicated hiring model?

Considered as an ideal model for businesses that are planning to outsource, the dedicated hiring model effectively and efficiently helps in-house and offshore teams to seamlessly work together. As a result, both teams can reduce communication issues and remote work problems and thus allow the offshore CakePHP developer to become an extension of the in-house team.

 

Due to the benefits and flexibility of the model, it is a highly recommended outsourcing model for companies who would like to work with an offshore developer or team. In addition, one lesser-known advantage of using the model is its ability to flexibly add or reduce offshore developers at any point during the project. This practicality enables businesses to easily scale their offshore development team.

 

Pros

  • The dedicated hiring model is best for long-term projects that have no specific requirements and scope.
  • Using the model, the cost of a certain project can still be approximated despite no clear details.
  • It is suitable for hands-on employers who would prefer to directly work with the offshore developer.
  • Employers can easily keep track of the offshore developer’s progress and check the product’s quality
  • The offshore CakePHP developer gains a better understanding of the in-house team’s objectives and expectations, allowing them to become an effective and efficient extension of the in-house team.
  • The offshore CakePHP developer works exclusively for you.

 

The dedicated hiring model is suitable for employers or businesses that:

  • Prefer to work and communicate directly with a dedicated offshore CakePHP developer
  • Prefer to gain savings in terms of recruitment services and operations
  • Prefer to flexibly scale their offshore developers at any point during the project

 

Combining the dedicated hiring model’s advantages and the company’s 20 years of experience in the IT offshore industry, Cloud Employee’s dedicated team offers an effective, flexible, cost-effective, and low-risk outsourcing model.

 

Our unique dedicated developer model has been modified to cut down on the long and difficult hiring process, to make working practices more efficient and flexible, and to bridge the gap between businesses and professional offshore developers—all for a competitive industry rate. As such, Cloud Employee takes pride that our business model works better than any other IT outsourcing models.
