DDC as drupal developer
I am myself a very experienced drupal developer. I have done more than 5 years of professional drupal development. I have come to a level where I have a deep knowledge of the drupal core and it's apis as well the structure and the apis of the most used contributed drupal modules.
I know my way around in the tens of thousands drupal modules, I know which modules to use and which not to use. I allways code and build applications according to web standards, the drupal standards and do things the drupal way. I have done drupal module development creating hundred of custom drupal modules.
Drupal module development ranged from integration of third party systems, integration of webservices, content creation enrichments, custom interfaces, custom workflows, custom access models, custom forms, custom performance optimisation, custom search, ...
I have been coaching teams, installing and improving development workflows for major agencies in Belgium. I have guided junior drupal developers in drupal module development. Doing coding reviews I have learned these junior developers how to improve the quality of their custom drupal modules. In custom drupal module development, drupal developers should always be aware of security, performance, code quality and effort efficiency. Custom drupal development should only be necessary if existing options are all explored.
Having an experienced drupal developer makes sure no precious resources are waisted on reinventing the wheel. Save money by hiring experience.
I can provide you with drupal audits. Which can have a focus on:
drupal security audit
drupal performance audit
drupal code audit
An audit can give you a report on how your application is build. Is it according to standards?
Notice great drupal development
Drupal is an open source content management system used by big websites on the web. Their are thousands of Drupal developers all claiming they are capable of implementing the platform. Surely not all developers are the most experienced when it comes to Drupal. How do you tell the good from the bad?
What is the Drupal Developer's experience?
Find out how long he has been developing Drupal websites. He should be able to show a list of high quality, high profile drupal sites. Ask him to show you around in the backend of a site. Let him show of the capabilities of a drupal site. Ask them to give you a demo so you can try it out yourself.
Do they specialize in Drupal development or do they offer every content management system on the planet?
Agencies and developers with too many offerings means they aren't focused on world class offerings that add value for their clients. Agencies offering anything mostly dont know the best features of the system and will deliver something basic where you pay to much for.
If the agency focusses on drupal only then they know all the good stuff. They will give it to you at the same price. They will have the goodies as a part of their system.
They also will be able to give you any custom functionality you ask for but they wont reinvent the wheel. Focussed agencies will only resort to custom development if it is really necesary, where unfocussed ones will resort to custom development because they dont know it is already there. Resulting in you paying to much. You don't want to be paying them to learn how to use drupal.
Can they meet your needs now and in the future?
Drupal has thousands of add-on modules that can be added to the main core to perform certain functions. Ask the agency what add-on modules they typically use, which ones work as they are and which ones require modification. There's a good chance you will need to use a module or two in your site. If they can't demonstrate this ability it's likely you will have costly updates in the future. Every module has its issues, so check to see what customizations they've needed to make to fit a client's particular need and what modules they've created from scratch because they didn't exist.
Drupal is an open source community built by the hard work of thousands, for free! A good developer embraces the community, so ask them what modules they've contributed back to the open source community.
How do I know if I'm going to get a good bang for my buck?
Picking up the expertise of CMS platform takes deep pockets and a ton of research and experimentation. It takes years to gain a firm understanding of the ins and outs of these complex software systems. Be leery of developers claiming the lowest rates. Their low rates seem attractive, but the lack of experience will cost you more in the long run in the form of bug fixes, timeline overruns and misalignment of objectives. Cover yourself by asking about their warranty period; what is covered and for how long.
