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. This course combines practical excersises

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.

The Sprints

Timeboxing is a critical concept in Scrum as well as in this course. This is especially evident during the Sprints. Each event within a Sprint has a timebox duration and each team is expected to obey it.

Activity Timebox
Sprint Planning The Product Owner presents an ordered Product Backlog and the Development Team forecasts and plans its Sprint Backlog 15 min
Development The Development Team self-organizes to complete their plan, develop the PBIs, and deliver a done increment of functionality 75 min
Grooming The Scrum Team inspects and grooms the Product Backlog Varies
Sprint Review Each team presents their done increment for feedback 15 min
Sprint Retrospective A group retrospective meeting is held to inspect and adapt the current Sprint in hopes of making the next Sprint more effective 15 min

 

Audience

This course is suitable for any member of a Scrum Development Team, such as those who develop tests, architecture, design, schema, or code. Entire teams are encouraged to attend this course and experience the positive effects of collaborating inside of a timebox according to their definition of done. Each team must be cross-functional, ensuring it has the necessary skills. Product Owners, Scrum Masters, stakeholders, and those evaluating Scrum’s effectiveness are welcome to attend, but keep in mind that every attendee will be expected to participate and collaborate equally, working towards the achievement of their team’s goals.

Note: This course assumes that each student has read the Scrum Guide, has a basic understanding of Scrum, and is using Visual Studio 2013 Premium edition (or above). Failure to meet any of these prerequisites may result in a diminished learning experience.
