Course Overview

The Applying Professional Scrum for Software Development (APS-SD) is delivered as a flipped learning experience divided into learning blocks, each with presentations and lectures in the form of videos, reading material, and writing activities that are provided for self-study complemented by 1/2 day live virtual sessions delivered online using Microsoft Teams and Mural.

Applying Professional Scrum for Software Development (APS-SD) enables students to experience how to deliver quality software using Scrum with Agile and DevOps practices. Students work in Scrum Teams over a series of Sprints, creating code on a realistic software system to learn Scrum while using Scrum. The course, formerly known as Professional Scrum Developer, includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Developer I certification assessment.

Over the five half-day students are introduced to an existing and complex pre-existing product that they are expected to update and improve over a series of Sprints. Students are expected to apply increasingly sophisticated modern engineering practices using the Scrum Framework to manage the complexity. The core focus is on delivering increments of releasable functionality using those modern engineering practices while fending off common challenges of the workplace in a safe space to experiment and improve.

Applying Professional Scrum for Software Delivery Certification

Who should attend

The APS for Software Development course is intended for all members of a Scrum Team involved in developing and delivering software based systems including: architects, analysts, programmers, database developers, testers, managers, IT-Operations and others, including Scrum Masters and Product Owners. This course provides greatest value if the whole Scrum Team (Developers, Scrum Master and Product Owner) attend together and experience the power of real teamwork.

Of course, this class is also valuable to individuals attending without their entire team. These students will experience working on a Scrum Team during the class and will be able to transfer their learnings to their teammates, often convincing their teammates of the advantages of using Scrum, Agile and DevOps practices.

Prerequisites

  • Computer – Your computer will need to be fast enough to run both Microsoft Teams and Mural. We recommend 2 monitors so that you can see everyone and the work easily.
  • Webcam – Please consider your staging and presence; what others see when you are on video. Try to avoid backlighting that renders you in shadow, the up-nostril, the baldie, or the half-head. 80% of human communication comes from body language and other visual queues. Consider your camera angles and try to have a view that is as close to what you would expect in person across a table.
  • Internet – We recommend a strong internet to support high fidelity video both from you and with us.

Supporting people with disabilities

We do our best to support people with disabilities. Please ask us about what we can do. Closed Captioning – For persons who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, live captions allow to see what others are saying.

You can go through the recording at your own pace as well as go back to double-check anything you might have missed.
