    Can you be more specific to what you're doing? Typically I find that sloppy code along with bad practices decrease the efficiency of PHP. Now if you're using a database such as MYSQL.. that's a whole different path we can go down.

    You mean to make the code execute faster?

    There are lots of little things and you may need to write several copies of the same functionality and speed test it. Typically what I'd do is put it a for($i = 0; $i < 1000; i++) loop and see how long it takes to run it x thousand times as the speed difference will be tiny for a single run.

    Your big, easy gains in performance will be in your database queries. Don't be afraid to request what you need, just make sure the queries are written right. I had a massive query that was slow, or it could actully kill the server. Changed one part of it and it runs really, really fast.

    You make sure they write code that runs without warnings, notices and errors on the latest version of PHP (7.1.x) - that way, the code will at least not be using deprecated functions like mysql_ and other implementations. Make sure that every query is prepared, and make sure that code is formatted and is using modern concepts, and PHP 5.6+ / 7+ syntax.

    The point is, if you know next to nothing about code, there will be no way for you to really know if the code does what it does in an effective way or not. I suggest you, after you start up the project, drop some of the code you have written for you here, so we can have a look. Smaller functions, or classes might tell us at least a bit about the quality of the code you have received.

    You'll find plenty of people who are very anti the "bloat" you get with bootstrap - and it uses Javascript, not Java (they are completely different things)

    The only way you can vet progress is by asking for code samples and then seeing if you can understand what they're doing and why and that will involve some learning on your part. If you can't, or don't want to learn (no time, not interested etc) then you may want to pay a bit more to have the confidence that the person doing the work is qualified.

    There's nothing wrong with Bootstrap.. some of the largest web sites that receive millions and millions of visitors use it. Those visitors don't have issues with it.. the only people who have issues with it are developers and designers that think their small penises become smaller by using anything written by someone smarter than them. These types of geektards (geek + retard) are often self employed because no legitimate company will hire them as they turn 1 week tasks in to 6 month development projects just so they can say "I built my untested code better!!".

    I am serious. If bootstrap is going to save you time, provide structure and your end product will look better then by all means use it. It's not as "bloated" as people make it out to be once you optimize for it (ie exclude what you don't use). And even in it's original entirety 99.999% of devices render the pages just fine with virtually no difference from a page that doesn't use it.

    Again... work smart. Time is way more valuable.
