More Information

Language: English

Over the 4 days, students gain a real-world view of what it is like to build software with Scrum. Throughout the course, students collaborate over a series of Sprints. They learn modern engineering practices, and use the Scrum framework to cope with changes. There is a key focus on having students learn how to develop and deliver increments of potentially releasable functionality from a realistic Product Backlog. By doing so, students will experience real-world challenges and issues and will learn how to handle them by continuously improving during the Sprint cycles.

The course teaches how Agile engineering practices and supportive DevOps tools improve a team's capabilities even more.
