Event Details

Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) Track Two Overview:

A Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) is someone who has demonstrated through a combination of formal training and a technical skills assessment that he or she has a working understanding of Scrum principles and has learned specialized Agile engineering skills. The Scrum Alliance requires at least 5 days of formal training followed by a CSD assessment/evaluation. To make it easy for you, The Braintrust Consulting Group has bundled a series of our classes into a complete track. CSD Track Two bundles our Scrum Essentials class (SE), our Agile Engineering (AE0 class, and our Test Driven Development (TDD) class. At the conclusion of the 5 days, you will have a thorough understanding of Scrum Development and you will meet all requirements to earn your Scrum Developer (CSD) Certification. CSD Track Two is intended for professional software developers who are on a Scrum team and want to understand how Scrum and Agile engineering practices are applied and how they affect their role in the team. It’s ideal for candidates who already have their Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) certification or developers who are interested in move advanced Test Driven Development (TDD) techniques.
