The Applying Professional Scrum for Software Development (APS for software development) course is intended for all Scrum Team members to develop and deliver software-based systems. It is including architects, analysts, programmers, database developers, testers, managers, IT-Operations, and others, including Scrum Masters and Product Owners. This course provides the greatest value if the whole Scrum Team (Developers, Scrum Master, and Product Owner) attend together and experience the power of real teamwork. Teams that attend together are not only able to apply learnings to their work immediately but are also able to recall their classroom experiences to overcome particularly challenging times.
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. They will be able to transfer their learnings to their teammates, often convincing their teammates of the advantages of using Scrum, Agile, and DevOps practices.
There is no prerequisite, but attendees will be able to make the most of the class if they:
- Have studied the Scrum Guide (http://www.scrumguides.org)
- Have taken the Scrum Open (free online assessment)
- Have experience in software development either as a developer, tester, UI designer, Business Analyst, DBA, or DevOps engineer.
This course is highly interactive and uses diverse teaching methods (lectures, self-assessments, group discussions, activities, and videos) to accommodate different learning styles This training will also leverage on participant’s personal life and work experiences.
