Interviewing Programmers

I found this article going through the PHPDevelopers blog. It is one of their better articles that they chose to comment on. I just want to put it here so I can remember it and let other people find it if that is something they are looking for. The starting idea is:
I personally find that asking a coding test of junior programmers is a GREAT tool for helping to evaluate them. Typically just a very simple test, a basic CRUD application. Looking at what they create not only gives you insight into how they think and code (did they do MVC? a simple single .php file? handle web security? etc). It also gives you a great starting point to begin discussions with them in person, asking them about why they did (or didn’t) do certain things.

Those are things that a basic PHP programmer should at least know of.
