    Good php freelancers?? Know any?

    I have a few projects I need to get done but I don't know any good coders.

    Any recommendations?

    I have had problems in the past with some coders who were learning php on my dime, while saying they were working on it...it cost me a lot of time.

    Are there any questions I can ask that will let me know off the bat how good a coder is in PHP? If I ask for work they have done, it is really hard to check up on it as they could link anywhere and say they did it.

    Here are my projects:

    Thanks

    Start working with developers with a small project to check their skills, then hire them for bigger projects.

    Yeah, test them out on a small scale low-budget script and see how they treat it. If they still do a good job and turn it around quickly, despite the low importance, then they are worth trusting for something bigger.

    Note that your project requires a coder to go in and mess with someone elses code - I always find this an unknown quantity, you just never know how crap that code is going to be to get your head around it.
