Course Overview


Professional Scrum Developer (PSD) is a 3-day course where students make up an entire Scrum Team where they concurrently do requirements engineering, design, development, testing, integration and deployment within a single iteration.

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 together as a team in a series of Sprints where 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 increments of potentially releasable functionality from a realistic Product Backlog.

Students concurrently work together with their Scrum Teams on requirements engineering, design, development, testing, integration, and deployment within a single iteration. The course teaches how Agile engineering practices and supportive ALM tools improve a team’s capabilities even more.

The course is available in .NET and Java specific technologies along with a generic technology course for developers using other technology stacks. The .NET version was developed in partnership with Microsoft® and is the official training solution for Microsoft Visual Studio. In private classes, Professional Scrum Trainers can work with you to define a specific technology stack that meet your needs.
