looking to hire web programmers for small jobs

Recommended Posts

I have the odd small and annoying programming job to fix stupid things involving PHP, wordpress, jquery, etc. and looking to add people to my skype to chat with when I need something done. if anyone cares please email me at kenw232@yahoo.com.

 

none of it is big dollars. just small bugs.

Don't expect to find any (even half) decent devs if you're not willing to pay the market rate, which by the tone of the post you are not. You will likely just end up with even more technical debt than you already have.

It's not about how the "bugs" are. You need to appreciate the fact you're paying for time. Developers that value their time i.e. charge the market rate, are usually good at what they do. I've only ever seen bad things of developers charging low amounts. /rant

This^^ What can appear to be a small bug on the surface can quite easily require a huge and lengthy refactor, especially if there's no automated testing involved, which by the looks of things there isn't. So when we fix the said bug we don't have a reliable way of determining that our changes aren't breaking something elsewhere. Especially in a typical spaghetti mess of WordPress.

Lack of automated testing is still generally the norm in the industry. I suspect it always will be overall, because it takes time to learn how to do it and get value from it, and businesses that build WordPress style sites generally chose WordPress in the first place just to hack something together quickly in order to maximise profits. And we all know how that ends when the project gets to anything close to complexity...
