What interview techniques should you use to hire the best CodeIgniter developers?

When employing the best CodeIgniter developers, it’s essential to keep in mind the goal of the interview is to evaluate your potential candidate’s skills and understanding within the time of the interview.


Here are some helpful tips for interview questions and techniques that you can apply to determine the best CodeIgniter developer for you and your tech project.


Design questions aimed at effective evaluation

It’s important to ask the interviewee inquiries that help you evaluate them with fixed criteria in mind. Your questions should help you assess if the candidate meets and hopefully exceed, said criteria. For example, based on their answers, do they present beliefs and culture that aligns with your company’s values and goals and, of course, do they meet the competencies and expectations of the role as a CodeIgniter developer for your project.


You can easily determine other important points by asking questions. The first is knowing the depth of their knowledge and understanding. It’s encouraged to ask about their previous projects as it’s a surefire way to know their technical skills in practical applications. Another thing to note is how they talk about their recent tech project and how well do the CodeIgniter candidates explain concepts that aren’t within the wheelhouse of a non-technical person’s perspective.


The second thing to also note is their communication skills. As developers, they are often relegated to the front of the screen, and some work way into the odd hours of the day. This essentially impedes their social skills and are often stereotyped as shy and very quiet. Regardless of these common stereotypes about developers, the level of their communication skills are still important. It’s encouraged to pay close attention to the non-verbal cues exhibited by the CodeIgniter candidate throughout the interview. A few things to note would be their tone of voice, body language, their posture, frequency in eye contact and their use of hand gestures. It’s indicative of how comfortable they are interacting and how they handle being the centre of attention. Their soft skills are still equally important as this helps avoid any foreseeable miscommunication if they are adept with conversing with you and possibly bring up problems that might arise throughout the duration of your tech project.


Conduct technical tests

For any highly technical position, such as a CodeIgniter developer, it’s strongly encouraged to hold online programming tests for them as these further assess their depth of knowledge, experience, and critical thinking skills through real-time practical application.


By the end of these tests and interviews, choosing your CodeIgniter candidate who is more qualified than at face value will always be the wisest choice as they should be able to assess any problem that arises, effectively troubleshoot and be communicable when the problem is more complex and requires help.


Here are some sample questions that you can ask your candidates. 

Q: How can you remove index.php from URL in CodeIgniter?

A: Follow below steps to index.php from URL in Codeigniter

Step 1: Open config.php and replaces

$config['index_page'] = "index.php" to $config['index_page'] = ""


$config['uri_protocol'] ="AUTO" to $config['uri_protocol'] = "REQUEST_URI"

Step 2: Change your .htaccess file to

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|[Javascript / CSS / Image root Folder name(s)]|robots\.txt)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]

Q: How will you add or load a model in CodeIgniter?

A: In Codeigniter, models will typically be loaded and called from within your controller methods. To load a model you will use the following method:


If your model is located in a sub-directory, include the relative path from your model’s directory. For example, if you have a model located at application/models/blog/Posts.php you’ll load it using:


Once your Model loaded, you will access its methods using an object with the same name as your controller:


class Blog_controller extends CI_Controller {
       public function blog()
               $data['query'] = $this->blog->get_last_ten_entries();
               $this->load->view('blog', $data);

Q: What are the Sessions in CodeIgniter? How to read, write or remove session in CodeIgniter? 

A: Sessions in CodeIgniter

In CodeIgniter Session class allows you to maintain a user’s “state” and track their activity while they are browsing your website.


In order to use session, you need to load Session class in your controller.


$this->load->library(‘session’); method is used to sessions in CodeIgniter


Once loaded, the Sessions library object will be available using:


Reading session data in CodeIgniter

You can also read a session data by using the magic getter of CodeIgniter Session Class

Creating a session in CodeIgniter

Session’s Class set_userdata() method is used to create a session in CodeIgniter. This method takes an associative array containing your data that you want to add in session.


$newdata = array(
       'username'  => 'johndoe',
       'email'    => '[email protected]',
       'logged_in' => TRUE

If you want to add userdata one value at a time, set_userdata() also supports this syntax:

$this->session->set_userdata('some_name', 'some_value');

Removing Session Data

Session’s Class unset_userdata() method is used to remove a session data in CodeIgniter. Below are example usages of same.


Unset particular key


Unset an array of item keys

$array_items = array('username', 'email');

What is the dedicated hiring model?

The Dedicated Hiring Model integrates the dedicated offshore team you choose with your existing in-house development team, basically reducing the chances of any project’s design and architecture. This gives clients close control over all aspects of the outsourcing partnership; from the hiring process up to the team management, all standards set by clients are to be implemented.


Because of its flexible nature, it’s considered as one of the best engagement models. You can request for tech talents, resources, and types of equipment at any given time corresponding to the requirements of the project. The Dedicated Hiring Model allows the in-house team to scale up or down with ease.


Another thing to remember is the payment method. It’s now more convenient for you, you would only have to pay once which already includes the offshore team member’s monthly salary and the outsourcing provider’s service fee.

  • Predictable budget despite an indefinite project scope.
  • You will have full access and control over the whole recruitment process, selection of candidates, and management of the offshore team.
  • Product quality can be monitored, assessed and guaranteed.
  • The offshore team gains more in-depth knowledge and understanding of the client’s objectives, goals, standards, and expectations.
  • The offshore team exclusively works for you throughout the project scope.


The Dedicated Hiring Model is perfect for businesses that:

  • Prefer to work with dedicated Drupal developers for their current and upcoming future projects.
  • Prefer to reduce expenses in terms of searching for specific talents, and the recruitment process.
  • Require flexibility in a team’s workload and scalability especially during the project’s development.
