When you have an idea for your next big project, but no technical skills to implement it, hiring a freelance developer can be a great solution.
But the question is how would you decide on a freelancer if you are not from an IT background? In this blog we have covered 4 kinds of IT freelancers that can help you succeed with your idea. We will start with the basics to give you a good starting point about what to look in for a developer.
The Web Developer
The role of a web developer can be divided into two parts:
Front-end – which is everything you see and interact with in your browser.
Back-end – It is the data management and business logic that supports your app behind the scenes.
A web project is tend to be structured front to back as a technology stack. It depends on the project, you may need a back end developer, a front end developer, or both or an IT team with different skill sets.
Alternatively, a full stack developer can help you to organize the project across the entire stack. A full stack developer understands both front end and back end development. The best approach for someone who doesn’t know anything about web development is to hire a senior web developer or a full stack developer who can help you understand the unique needs of your project.
The WordPress Developer
Over the years a growing number of people and companies have started using WordPress sites to set up their businesses in an easy and cost efficient way. This has led to a growing demand of WordPress developers who can help you in customizing your website to get that look, feel, and performance you want.
The Mobile Developer
Mobiles are the integral part of our lives today. From smartphones to tablets, a mobile developer can help you develop apps for a range of devices. The two major operating systems are Android and iOS.
On the Android side, developers typically have strong Java skills, Kotlin programing language has also became famous for the Android Development.
On the iOS side, search for a developer with a solid background in swift. High experience iOS developers may have experience in Objective – C (the predecessor to swift for IOS development)
The Software Developer
If you are looking to build something like a desktop application, or maybe you are trying to create a video game, or perhaps you’re looking for someone who can program an IOT device.
Here are some common examples of software projects that fall outside the typical domain of web and mobile applications.
- Video Games - Skills include low-level languages such as c and c++ as well as platform-specific languages such a swift for iOS. To build a game you will have to look at game development engines such as unity or unreal.
- IoT - Apart from low-level languages such as c and c++, look for someone who’s familiar with major IoT platforms such as AWS IoT, Google Cloud IoT, or IBM Watson.
- Windows Desktop Application – When you build for windows, it’s all about the .NET Framework for top – level desktop applications and Win32 API for more low-level control of the hardware.
