PSD IBuilding excellent software using Scrum requires the Development Team to have a solid understanding of Scrum, effective software development practices, and the tools that support them. All members of the Development Team need the fundamental knowledge of using Scrum in the context of their specialty, be it testing, coding, designing user interfaces, documenting the product, or database management.
The Professional Scrum Developer I (PSD I) assessment measures knowledge of how to build complex software products using Scrum, and allows people to validate this understanding.
People who pass a PSD I assessment will receive the industry recognized PSD I certification. Those with a PSD I certification have demonstrated knowledge of professional software development practices like test-first development, appropriate automation strategies, emergent design, and other topics included in the PSD subject areas. The PSD I assessment is significantly more valuable than available alternatives for developers using Scrum. We strive to ensure that the PSD I assessment remains valuable and relevant through frequent inspection and adaptation of the PSD subject areas, and associated assessment content.
