It can be difficult to hire a developer without knowing all of their skills. To avoid problems once you hire them, it’s possible to use a PHP Online Programming Test so you can test the full extent of their knowledge prior to offering them a job.
PHP is a scripting language that is used for a lot of web development. More than 240 million websites have PHP installed on them, so it is a very popular language that is used. Not all programmers have the same level of knowledge and you will want to know what they do and don’t know. Tests for Geeks is there for you.
The PHP/MySQL test (https://tests4geeks.com/test/php-mysql) will be useful when deciding what they know. You can have a candidate take the test and once they have completed it, you will get the results. This will allow you to see how much they know and then decide if you want to hire them.
The test is not designed to take the place of an interview. You may still want to conduct an interview. However, you can narrow down the candidates that you interview by first finding out about the full extent of their PHP knowledge. If they don’t do well on their test, then you may not want to bother with an interview. This will save you time and ensure you’re only interviewing the most qualified of the candidates.
