Drupal has been one of the most preferred choices of CMS all over the world. The main reason for the success of Drupal is that it is a deadly combination of core functionality as well as open-source roots. Along with this, Drupal can provide you with all the necessary upgrades and add-ons which can help in bringing your digital business forward. If you are looking to hire a Drupal professional, here are some of the things that you should look for:

Drupal Development Experience

If you find a good experienced Drupal developer then whatever the complexity of the project it can be completed in a very professional manner. The experienced Drupal developer would have worked on a variety of projects in the past which makes them highly capable of giving you high-quality work.

 

 

How Good are they at Writing Secure Codes?

Security is a major concern for online projects. Make sure that your Drupal vendor is well-versed in writing secure codes to prevent threats and exploits.

Contributions to the Drupal Community

One of the reasons why Drupal is so flexible is because of the thousands of modules that have been contributed to the community by several Drupal vendors. Find out where your Drupal vendor stands in this community; go through the modules that they have contributed. Only a well-established contributor can provide you the needed modules for ensuring that your project gets equipped with all the necessary functionalities.

Do they have Knowledge of Integrating Third-Party Apps in Drupal?

This can be the best way by which you will be able to judge the knowledge and skill of that particular person. Integrating apps is one of the most complex things in Drupal but at the same time, it can also be very useful for your organization. If they are not aware of the process of integration of third party application then it would take time to learn this skill and provide you with good work. For hiring a person along with skills communication with clients is also very important. It is always beneficial if you hire a professional who can convey the development aspects in a way that it can be understood.

 

 

Which Industries have they Worked in the Past?

Before hiring any professional you should enquire properly about what all industries have they worked in? It can be very effective if you hire a professional who has worked in an industry which is similar to that of yours. But this is not the only approach if you are looking for some kind of expansion then hiring a professional who has worked in a different industry can also be very useful. This can bring a lot of experience on the table and your organization can yield more innovative and creative solutions.
