Event Details

Certified Scrum Developer® (CSD®) Certification - Scrum Alliance®

Host: Rob Myers

Principal Agile Instructor & Coach

This three-day agile engineering training provides participants with the technical skills necessary to write better code with fewer defects and respond quickly to changing requirements. You'll learn to use a deliberate and disciplined approach to tackle any development challenge and produce reliable, robust, verifiable applications. The workshop will leave you better prepared to respond to tomorrow’s changes, and anchors the Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) designation by the Scrum Alliance.

This is a hands-on agile engineering workshop, so get ready to roll up your sleeves and code! Participants will work in pairs on laptops configured with the tools necessary to support Agile delivery as we incrementally and iteratively build a simple, yet fully functional working application. The project will adhere to Scrum techniques, leading out with a Discovery/Planning session, with each day being broken into mini-sprints, interspersed with topic discussions/demonstrations of the various engineering practices that are duly reinforced with vigorous hands-on coding exercises.
