What You Will Learn
Over the 3 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 apply 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.
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.
The .NET version was developed in partnership with Microsoft® and is the official training solution for Microsoft Visual Studio.
