Applying Professional Scrum for Software Development Live Virtual Class, Jan 6-8, 2022
Applying Professional Scrum for Software Development (APS-SD) is a 3-day hands-on course where students experience how to deliver quality software using Scrum with Agile and DevOps practices. Students work in Scrum Teams over a series of Sprints, creating code on a realistic software system to learn Scrum while using Scrum. The course, formerly known as Professional Scrum Developer, includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Developer I certification exam (PSD I).
Over the 3 days, students gain a real-world view of what it is like to build software with Scrum. They collaborate over a series of Sprints applying modern engineering practices, and using the Scrum framework to manage complexity. The key focus of the class is on how to develop and deliver increments of releasable functionality. Students will experience real-world challenges and issues, and through a series of Sprints will learn how to continuously improve the way they perform their work.
The course teaches how Agile engineering practices and supportive DevOps tools complement Scrum and further advance a team’s capabilities. This course provides greatest value if the whole Scrum Team (Developers, Scrum Master and Product Owner) attend together and experience the power of real teamwork. Teams that attend together are not only able to apply learnings to their work immediately, but are also able to recall their classroom experiences to overcome particularly challenging times.
The course is available in .NET and Java specific technologies, along with a generic technology course. Professional Scrum Trainers can work with you to define a specific technology stack that meets your needs in private classes for your organization.
The .NET version was developed in partnership with Microsoft® and is the official training solution for Microsoft Visual Studio.

The Instructor Alasdair Macleod has been involved in agile transformations for UK Government, Utilities Companies and Financial Services. All of these Enterprise Organisations have been undergoing transformations to agile ways of working so that they can deliver better for their customers while ensuring there is a return on the investment to the organization.
This includes the wide transformation in the UK government to DIgital Services and moving away from traditional routes to provide government services that require large centers of people delivering services in an inefficient manner. To complete this Alasdair has been involved in the training of many teams that deliver work within digital delivery Centres and the managers who facilitate the relationship between these teams and the lines of business the deliver products for.
