An expert Canadian WordPress development company seems like a dime a dozen when you start out looking for one to hire. But, are all of these so-called “experts” the same? A WordPress developer is often thought of as a professional that develops WordPress plugins. But in reality, there’s a lot more to it than that!
Not Qualified Development Experts
WordPress is a platform that makes it easy for people to use even without being PHP experts. Since it is an open-source CMS, anyone with basic internet skills can build a website with WordPress. However, this certainly does not qualify them as WordPress development experts.
When looking for a WordPress developer, you may come across dozens of options. Just be aware that the majority may be underqualified and may have had no official training. These are often people who have built a few WordPress sites on their own, thanks to the ease of WordPress templates.
Low-quality WordPress development may work in the short term, but it may cause problems for you down the road. You could run into security issues, plugins that do not work correctly, or even problems updating your site in the future. When you reach out to your site builder, they will be unable to fix any of your issues since they are unfamiliar with the infrastructure of WordPress. Utilizing a solid development team can assist with bug fixes and regular updates, so you don’t need to worry.
A True WordPress Developer
A true WordPress developer is one who can make custom plugins and modules and are able to develop a theme around WordPress. The expert should be able to understand WordPress core functions, and they should be a PHP developer.
Unfortunately, not everyone that labels themselves a WordPress developer deserves the title. In general, software development requires specific disciplines and skills often lacking in many people hired to fix or create a WordPress site. Vast amounts of knowledge and a good amount of PHP skills are needed to create cutting-edge WordPress plugins or themes and making them properly work in all environments. An experienced development team should be knowledgeable about practices that are considered best in the industry. Your business will rely on your developer knowing how to enhance the functionalities that are latent in WordPress.
