Event description

Description

Geared toward web developers, new to the SCRUM method this joint Scrum26 & Byte Academy Workshop, part 1 of a 4 part series will help you become more efficient with your current team. Notoriously “simple to understand, difficult to master” (Scrum Guideline) our workshop is tailored to dissolve all of the intricacies of applying Scrum in practice.

You will become confident about joining a development team using Scrum, or integrating Scrum into your own entreprise. The session is programming language agnostic, welcoming all software development backgroundsand in different industries.* You will receive a certificate upon graduation from the course.

Description

In this first hands on session we’ll introduce Scrum and Agile then start a basic scrum framework which includes understanding roles, creating a product backlog, understanding processes and planning your sprint. We’ll go through its background, terminology, key processes and documents involved. Concepts such as self organization, cross functionality and efficiency will be emphasized. Other topics include:

  • Steps in the scrum process: user stories, etc

  • People and parts of frame work

  • Feedback loops

  • Sprints

Putting this information into play we will practice 5 Sprints in a fast-paced setting to become proficient and comfortable with the process, so that you can confidently integrate an agile organization. After an introduction the class will occur in the following order:**

  • Product Backlog Refinement Meeting #1

  • Sprint #1: Terminology & Artifacts

  • Sprint #2: Processes

  • Sprint #3: 3 Scrum Pillars

  • Open Q&A

  • Sprint #4: Tying it all together

  • Sprint #5: Practice

  • Notes, Q&A & Next Steps

Please ensure you are familiar and able to:

  • Use Git: Have a Github account, understand the Forking Flow for collaborative projects.

About Scrum26: SCRUM26 is dedicated to teaching and improving distributed teamwork. We focus on making developers into better communicators, and masters of self-management. The original scrum techniques was developed for co-located teams, who can take advantage of constant face-to-face interaction. Today more and more development teams are distributed, and we believe that with some rigor and practice, remote work can be just as effective and pleasurable!
