Laravel is an open-source and widely-used PHP-based framework. Laravel is the first choice of web developers when it comes to web application development. It comes with features like easy authentication, an innovative blade template engine, effective ORM, a secure migration system, unit-testing, artisan, and libraries, and MVC architecture support. You would be surprised to know that today Laravel powers more than 1.1 million active websites. 


With this huge number of Laravel websites already existing on the web, it has become imperative to look for a professional, and well-versed Laravel programmer for your project. However, choosing to hire a Laravel developer with the right skill set is not easy now as there are millions of Laravel developers around. Well, here are some mandatory skills and abilities you can look for while choosing your Laravel developer. 


5 Skills you must look for to choose the right Laravel programmer for your next web project. 


Web development skills

Laravel developers must have knowledge of the fundamental web technologies and programming languages like PHP, JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. Actually, it is not really possible to efficiently build a Laravel website without having experience and understanding of these languages and tech-stacks. 


Database management skills:

Laravel developers must be experts in data management. This means they must be proficient in organising all the data, creating fields, tables, and databases as per the project requirements. They must have an in-depth understanding of MySQL, MySQLi, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL, and Oracle for efficiently and effectively managing the Laravel databases. 


Knowledge of OOP and MVC architecture:

Laravel follows the MVC or Model-View-Controller architecture. These features of the framework also ensure easier web app development and efficient teamwork as well. Also, all the techniques and methodologies are object-oriented in Laravel. And developers need to have a strong understanding of Object-Oriented Programming or OOP, objects, classes, traits, and methods. 


Knowledge of the project management frameworks:

Project management frameworks are remarkably beneficial when it comes to Laravel development. These frameworks offer a methodology that helps to end up with successful outputs as these frameworks mainly focus on the essential processes, tools, and tasks required to build a web application with Laravel from start till the end. So, make sure the developer you are choosing possesses this particular skill. 


Soft skills:

Apart from the tech-based skills, an ideal Laravel developer will also possess certain soft skills like listening ability to understand the exact requirements of the clients, creative skills, excellent and easy communication skills, and time-management skills to ensure on-time project delivery. 


So, if you want to get the best-in-class Laravel web development solutions for your business, you need to consider these above-mentioned skills and abilities while you are looking for a Laravel developer for your project. Having an engaging and competitive website or web application is important today to stay ahead of the SERPs and a developer with these skills can ensure the same by making the best use of the framework and its features.
