I'm a non-technical founder, so I have to outsource my development. I tried to work with Python and Ruby developers, but never had any luck, they seemed like hacks - and I tried to work with several of them.

PHP developers, in my experience, have their shit together. This is just my OWN personal experience. I would never hire a Python/Ruby guy again, I'm always going for PHP developers now.

Wow. Pretty broad generalization of Python and Ruby developers. Would love to get more details beyond "seemed like hacks".

Yeah, I admit it's a very broad generalization. I suspect it's because PHP developers are probably older developers with a bit more experience. Many python and ruby folks are new, and as a non-technical person, I can't really determine if they're good or not until they start working on a project.
