Scrum training for non-windows people

I have a background in Windows development, although have been working on Linux for the last year, so when taking the PSD course recently and doing practical exercises in C# I at least had some background knowledge, although MVC and TFS were a new topics. I work in a large environment made up of mainly Linux C/C++ developers, so I think they would struggle with the PSD course and so I cannot recommend it to my organisation.

I have been looking at the PSF (Foundations) 2 day course as an alternative to give a basic grounding in Scrum, but note this also states it is a practical course developing an application. Does this also use a windows development platform as part of the course?

Ultimately, if there is a course anywhere that is at least based on a Linux/Unix toolset then that would be much more applicable. Are there courses which can be tailored if the entire audience is Linux based and can courses be run on-site? (i.e. at our company premises)

Hi Mick,

I'd be happy to tailor the PSF and PSD classes using your technology stack on Linux with C++.
I can also make myself available and travel to your premise to deliver these classes.
you can email me sbourk [at] gmail [dot] com for more details.

thank you

Thanks Simon,

I'll run your offer past my org. Incidentally we are based in the UK; I note you are based in Canada?
