Event description



This Certified Scrum Developer training course is aimed at software developers (programmers) who are building software in an Agile environment. The goal is to expose students to the most important tools and techniques that need to be applied in order to build good software in the iterative and incremental way. These ideas are central to the entire field of Agile software development.

To understand the value Certified Scrum Developer training in agile technical practices can bring to your team, please watch this conversation between Paul Moore and Rocket Nine's founding trainer, Scott Dunn.


The Learning Objectives cover the critical skills in coding, testing, refactoring, continuous integration, and other related topics that are needed for successful team software development.

Learning Objectives:

By the completion of the Certified Scrum Developer training technical practices course, the student will be able to perform test-driven development, refactoring, and continuous integration in a course-provided sandbox situation. The student will be familiar with the terms and practices involved, and with why these practices are important. They will have taken the first steps toward becoming expert in iterative and incremental development.

By the completion of the Certified Scrum Developer training technical practices course, the student will be able to…


  • Understand why highly-effective developers write their own tests

  • Understand assertions

  • Understand the full spectrum of testing options

  • Identify various types of tests (unit tests, integration tests, functional tests, acceptance tests, etc)

  • Know how to write automated tests

Collaboration – This might include, but is not limited to, the following concepts:

  • Define pair programming and mob programming

  • Define “collective code ownership”

  • Describe “working together as one team.”

Test-Driven Development – A study of test-first development, including but not limited to, the following concepts:

  • Describe Test-Driven Development (TDD) as a design approach.

  • Review the steps of the red-green-refactor cycle.

  • Explain, using examples, at least three unit testing principles and practices.

  • Outline five qualities of a good test.

  • Describe how to measure test effectiveness.

Legacy Code

  • Describe what “legacy code” is

  • Develop a strategy for working effectively with legacy code

Refactoring – An introduction to the practice of refactoring, including but not limited to, the following concepts:

  • Define refactoring

  • Describe when to refactor.

  • Understand SOLID principles

  • Outline refactoring for maintainability. Define refactoring to patterns.

  • Understand—and recognize—code smells

Technical Debt

  • Describe what Technical Debt is

  • Understand the influences for technical debt

  • Match the benefits of various technical practices to influencers of technical debt

Test Doubles

  • Understand what test doubles are (e.g. mock, stub, fake, spy, etc)

  • Understand when to use a test double

  • Understand how to balance the trade-offs in using mocks

Continuous Mindset – An introduction to the key practices of continuous integration:

  • Define a single command build.

  • Summarize how to create a build that is automated, self-testing, and fast.

  • Describe the importance of a single-source repository.

  • Define increasing visibility and automating deployment.

What past students have said about this course:

  • “I learned A LOT from this class and now feel I am positioned in order to increase my technical skills for myself”

  • "The programming exercises were great"

  • "The instructors were very knowledgeable and made it easy to see how adjusting our practices could benefit us greatly"

  • "I liked practicing test driven development through pair programming and mob programming"

  • "All of the pair / mob programming exercises were very productive, and made me more comfortable working with my team"

  • “It’s honestly my favorite training I’ve had so far. I liked the dev focus!“


The candidates for this Certified Scrum Developer training technical practices course should generally be programmers in a conventional programming language such as Java, C#, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, Swift, C++, and so on. The course involves programming in a team environment. This course also offers student slots to testers who have some experience with test automation. All students will be using pair programming throughout the course and testers are typically paired with programmers. The course is a programming course, not a survey, overview, or discussion. Actual code will be written, tested, and reviewed by the instructor(s).

Students should also arrive at the course familiar with:

  • An understanding of programming logic

  • A willingness to code

  • Agile Manifesto (4 values, 12 principles) (AgileManifesto.org)

Attendee Requirements:

  • A computer with a prepared development environment. Students will be pair programming in this course and we will need at least 1 working computer for every two students.

When you register, you will be asked to submit your top two programming-language preferences. The Certified Scrum Developer training technical practices course is typically presented in Java or C#. Individuals can choose to work in a different language, but may be required to follow along in one of the aforementioned languages for some exercises.
