What interview techniques should you use to hire the best Joomla developer?
The first thing that you should remember before you head into your interviews with your candidates is that it's not enough to ask difficult questions. Rather, you should strive to ask significant questions—the kind of questions that will help you properly gauge a Joomla developer's ability and get a feel of their personality within a short period of time.
After asking the introductory questions to get to know a candidate's background, previous work experiences, and their work ethics, it is highly recommended that you also conduct technical tests to assess what your applicant can do. Remember that you shouldn't hire Joomla developers who only know the concepts, you must hire someone who applies them and uses them in his/her work.
With that being said, below you will find sample technical questions you can ask applicants for your Joomla development project:
Q: What are Joomla modules?
A: Modules are small content items which can be shown anywhere through the module manager in the administrative interface, and they extend the capabilities of Joomla by adding new functionality to the software.
Modules are installed in the Admin Section, and they may include the following:
- Main Menu
- Top menu
- Template Chooser
- Hit Counter
Q: What are mambots and plugins?
A: A Mambot is a small, task-oriented function, mini-program, or plugin that modifies content before it is displayed. They are also used to manipulate content, extend site search, add functionality, and more.
In Joomla! 1.5, mambots are renamed “plugins”; additionally, some third-party components, modules, and mambots themselves now have plugins.
Q: Name the files required to build a module?
Q: Name the files required to build a component in Joomla.
