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

When interviewing the best Laravel developers, it’s important to always remember that the goal is to assess the potential candidate’s abilities and understanding within the given time.


Here are some helpful and practical tips for interview questions and techniques that you can use to determine the best Laravel developer for you and your software project.


Asks questions that help you effectively evaluate and assess your candidates

It’s important to ask your potential Laravel developer candidates questions that help you evaluate them with a clear objective in mind. Compose your queries in such a way that they assess if the candidates meet and exceed the criteria you have in mind. Based on their answers to your questions, do they align with your company’s value and culture? and do they meet competencies and expectations of the role?


Another crucial thing to remember is to compose your questions in an open-ended format. This will help you assess the candidates' communication skills, and get to know them beyond what is written on their CVs. It’s also important to note the non-verbal cues throughout the interview. Assessing their body language, eye contact, posture, and use of hand gestures gives you an idea of the developer’s soft skills, such as their level of confidence and how comfortable they are being in front of an audience.


Further, it helps to ask about the Laravel developer’s previous projects. Inquire about the technical aspects of their past projects, such as how they were able to maintain the system to run smoothly. Ask them one problem that arose during the project and let them explain how they approached the problem and proceeded to troubleshoot it. This shows the Laravel developer’s in-depth understanding of the technical concepts and how well he/she is able to explain it to a non-technical person in a simplified but understandable way.


Conduct Technical Tests

Testing the potential Laravel developer through technical tests is the most practical and efficient way to assess the depth of their knowledge, experience, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. It’s highly encouraged to conduct an online programming test as this really helps in hastening the assessment process. It’s always wise to hire someone who is more than qualified at face-value—a Laravel developer who knows how to assess the given situation or problem and thinks it through before they troubleshoot.


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


Q: How do you turn off CSRF protection for a specific route in Laravel?

A: To turn off CRSF protection in Laravel, add following codes in “app/Http/Middleware/VerifyCsrfToken.php”

//add an array of Routes to skip CSRF check
private $exceptUrls = ['controller/route1', 'controller/route2'];
//modify this function
public function handle($request, Closure $next) {
//add this condition foreach($this->exceptUrls as $route) {
if ($request->is($route)) {
 return $next($request);
return parent::handle($request, $next);

Q: Explain validations in Laravel?

A: In programming, validations are a great way to ensure that your data is always in a clean and expected format before it gets into your database. Laravel provides different ways to validate your application’s incoming data. By default, Laravel’s base controller class uses a ValidatesRequests trait which provides a convenient method to validate all incoming HTTP requests coming from the client. You can also validate data in Laravel by creating Form Request.


Q: What is Eloquent ORM?

A: Laravel’s Eloquent ORM (object-relational mapper) provides a simple Active Record implementation for working with the database. Laravel provides many different ways to interact with your database, and Eloquent is most notable of them. Each database table has a corresponding “Model” which is used to interact with that table. Models allow you to query for data in your tables, as well as insert new records into the table.


Q: Explain what facades are in Laravel.

A: A Laravel facade provides a static-like interface to services that are in the application’s service container. Laravel self-ships with many facades which provide access to almost all features of Laravel’s. Laravel facades serve as “static proxies” to underlying classes in the service container and provide benefits of a terse, expressive syntax while maintaining more testability and flexibility than traditional static methods of classes. All of Laravel’s facades are defined in the Illuminate\Support\Facades namespace.


Q: What is database migration? How is it used to add/insert initial data to the database?

A: Migrations are like version control for your database, allowing your team to easily modify and share the application's database schema. Migrations are typically paired with Laravel's schema builder to easily build your application's database schema.


Laravel includes a simple method of seeding your database with test data using seed classes. All seed classes are stored in the database/seeds directory. Although seed classes may have any name as you wish, it is advisable to follow some sensible convention, such as UsersTableSeeder, etc. By default, a DatabaseSeeder class is defined for you. From this class, you may use the call method to run other seed classes, allowing you to control the seeding order.


Q: What is HTTP middleware?

A: Middleware provides a convenient mechanism for filtering HTTP requests entering your application. For example, Laravel includes a middleware that verifies if the user of your application is authenticated. If not, the middleware will redirect the user to the login screen. However, if the user is authenticated, the middleware will allow the request to proceed further into the application.


Of course, additional middleware can be written to perform a variety of tasks besides authentication. A CORS middleware might be responsible for adding the proper headers to all responses leaving your application. A logging middleware can help log all incoming requests to your application.


There are several middlewares included in the Laravel framework, including middleware for authentication and CSRF protection. All of this middleware are located in the app/Http/Middleware directory.


Q: How do you create a controller in Laravel?

A: The syntax used to create a controller in Laravel is as follows-

namespace AppHttpControllers;
use AppUser;
use AppHttpControllersController;
class UserController extends Controller
    * Show the profile for the given user.
    * @param  int $id
    * @return View
   public function show($id)
       return view('user.profile', ['user' => User::findOrFail($id)]);
