Finding cool Laravel developers using Laradir

When you’re working with a certain technology stack, you often find yourself looking for developers who are using the same tools and frameworks. The like-minded developers can help you find the best solutions and improve your skills.

They can even inspire you to learn new things you might not have considered otherwise. Now, there are places where you can find these developers, such as Twitter, GitHub, LinkedIn, and so on.

But the problem with these platforms is you have to be actively looking for them and you may have to judge them based on what they’re posting and what they interact about. You may end up following totally wrong people.

That’s where platforms like Laradir come in which helps you connect to certain niche-specific developers. In this case, as you might have guessed from the name, Laradir is a directory of developers who work around the Laravel ecosystem.

The “Find Developers” page on Laradir lets you go over all the developers who have signed up for the platform and you can filter them by the technologies they use, their location, role, and so on.

Once you sign up for Laradir, with the free credits, you can even get to know the developer’s other online presence or contact them further which in my opinion is just fantastic!

And since Laradir is a Laravel-focused directory of developers, it’s not surprising that the companies that are looking for Laravel developers can also find them on this platform. The developers on Laradir are pre-qualified through a manual approval process, so they can be sure that the profiles that they are looking at are legitimate. All this for a simple and low-cost subscription instead of paying for an Ad-based campaign.

I think Laravel is a win-win situation for both the developers and the companies since it’s a great way to showcase your skills and also to find new talent at the same time. So, if you’re looking for a Laravel developer, check out Laradir and see if you can find some cool developers there!
