How to Hire the Best Yii Developers

Yii (pronounced as “Yee”) is a high performance open-source MVC PHP web application framework that is also object-oriented and component-based. The term means “simple and evolutionary” in the Chinese language. Yii can also refer to the acronym for “Yes It Is”.


Since it is a generic web programming framework, Yii can be used to create various kinds of web applications using PHP. Due to the framework’s component-based architecture and sophisticated caching support, Yii allows businesses to develop a range of large-scale applications such as content management systems (CMS), portals, e-commerce projects, RESTful web services, and forums, among many others.


The latest version for the platform is Yii 2.0 which requires PHP 5.4.0 or higher. This version also runs best with the current version of PHP 7.

Why should you hire a Yii developer?

When you hire Yii developers, you can easily and flexibly develop all kinds of PHP-based web applications for you business. In using the platform, your business can experience the following advantages:

The framework is highly extensible
Yii can easily be customised to suit your business’ needs as most of its components are extensible.  


Yii promotes testing
The framework is integrated with Codeception, a PHP testing framework that streamlines the testing process for an application.


It simplifies security
Yii already comes with a security feature that helps Yii developers to easily and securely create web applications.


Yii reduces the application development time
The framework presents tools that help cut down on repetitive tasks and instead provide features that allows for more time on customising an application.

What technical skills should you look for when hiring Yii developers?

When companies hire Yii developers, they must know how to assess their candidates accordingly. This means looking at a developer’s technical expertise and ideal soft skills. Aside from having a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Software Development, IT, or other related fields, here are basic technical skills to look for when hiring Yii developers:

  • Solid background and experience in PHP programming and the Yii framework
  • Basic knowledge of object-oriented programming (OOP)
  • Knowledgeable of HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, MySQL, Mongo, Apache, Ajax, and jQuery
  • Good familiarity with UI/UX design
  • Experience developing different web applications (e.g. CMS, portal, forum) depending on the project requirement.


Take note that these technical requirements may still vary depending on your project requirements.
