Professional Scrum Developer

Course Objectives

Great software development using Scrum requires the seamless integration of requirements engineering, design, development testing, integration, and deployment within a single iteration. A well-functioning team, software development best practices, and ALM tools are key factors for success in such environments. Professional Scrum Developer is the only course available that teaches how this is done.

The Professional Scrum Developer course teaches students how to work in such an environment: In a Development Team, using modern software engineering practices and your specific technology platform to develop an increment of potentially releasable functionality. All of this is done as iterative incremental development within the Scrum framework. The course content bases on Professional Scrum Developer Objective Domain and the participants are invited to test their newly learned skills in the Professional Scrum Developer I assessment after the course.

Learning Outcomes
• Use Agile modern software engineering practices to develop software products
• Use Visual Studio and Team Foundation Service Application Lifecycle Management tools
• Initiate a project using Scrum
• Use Scrum and know how to work cross-functionally Solution Architects with Designers, Business Analysts, Testers and Product Owners
• Plan a Scrum/Agile Project and forecast the release date
• Know how to deliver a high-quality software in a short cycle
• Manage a software project using Scrum and Team Foundation Service

Target Audience


The Professional Scrum Developer courses cover three main topics:

The course simulates being part of a Scrum Development Team to expose students to the core Scrum concepts in action. Students learn how to work as part of a Development Team, which requires them to understand techniques for self-organization and cross-functionality. Through the course students develop skills in identifying and overcoming common Scrum Team dysfunctions.

Best Practices
PSD courses cover all of the technical practices that team members need to successfully implement and ship functionality. These include coding practices like test-driven development, continuous integration, and refactoring; architecture practices such as emergent architecture and evolutionary database development; release management practices like planning, estimation, requirements definition, and shipment; and quality assurance practices from defining “done” to pair programming, version control and acceptance testing.

PSD courses teach students how to leverage different development tools to employ Scrum practices. PSD and PSD+ .NET courses are taught in the context of Visual Studio 2012 using the latest Visual Studio Scrum template, while PSD Java courses are taught in the context of Eclipse and other open source tools. Students learn how to map specific tool features and functions to the general Scrum practices they must use to be effective team members.
