The Applying Professional Scrum for Software Development (APS-SD) course is designed for various roles within a Scrum Team, including architects, analysts, programmers, database developers, testers, managers, IT-Operations, Scrum Masters, and Product Owners. It is recommended that the entire Scrum Team, consisting of Developers, Scrum Master, and Product Owner, attend the course together to experience the benefits of teamwork fully. Attending as a team allows for immediate application of learned concepts and the ability to draw upon classroom experiences during challenging situations.

However, individuals attending without their entire team can still derive significant value from the course. They will have the opportunity to work within a Scrum Team during the training and can transfer their learnings to their teammates. This often leads to convincing their colleagues of the advantages of utilizing Scrum, Agile, and DevOps practices.

Before participating in the APS-SD class, it would be beneficial for students to have a basic understanding of the following topics:

  • Scrum Guide (required): Familiarize yourself with the Scrum framework’s core concepts, roles, and ceremonies.
  • Agile Principles and Values: Gain knowledge of the principles and values that drive Agile methodologies.
  • Software Development Practices: Acquaint yourself with modern software development practices such as Test-Driven Development (TDD), Continuous Integration (CI), and Refactoring.
  • Agile Requirements Management: Learn about user stories, acceptance criteria, and techniques for managing requirements effectively in an Agile environment.
  • Basic Coding Skills: Have a foundational understanding of programming concepts and coding practices.

By having a grasp of these topics, students will be better prepared to engage in the APS-SD class and actively participate in the hands-on exercises and Scrum team activities.
