I am looking for your recommendations about where and how to most effectively find highly experienced and capable people to do a Joomla upgrade.
Background: I have a small business website currently running Joomla 1.5.26 with the security upgrade, PHP 5.2, with a custom template. The site also uses RSFirewall and jSecure for security. There is no e-Commerce; the site just provides extensive informational resources with contact forms.
I need to upgrade the site presumably to Joomla 3.2 although ultimately with the 3.5 stable release in mind as a follow-on target. A new custom template that is responsive will be required. PHP needs to be upgraded as do some other extensions if they are not built into the current Joomla.
As I mentioned above I am looking for your recommendations on how best to find someone who is highly experienced, high quality, and high integrity to do the work.
