Professional Scrum Developer (PSD) is an immersive 3-day hands-on course for software development teams where they experience how to deliver quality software using Scrum with Agile and DevOps practices. This course teaches you why and how the Scrum Framework should be combined with modern DevOps engineering practices to improve a team’s capability to regularly deliver working software. Students practice real-life Scrum while working in teams during a series of Sprints to build a realistic product. They are introduced both to the mechanics, rules and principles of Scrum, and selected core engineering and technical patterns and practices that complement Scrum. The course is the perfect choice for software development teams that are challenged by both processes and tools and can be taught either as a public or as a private course for teams within a company.
The course includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Developer certification exam (PSD).
What You Will Learn
Students self-organize in Scrum Teams at the beginning of the course and are presented with a real-life case study. During the course, they practice the Scrum Framework in multiple realistic Sprints, during which they are gradually introduced to Scrum mechanics, roles and principles. In this way, the entire Scrum Team learns the Scrum Framework through its practical application, which leads to a clear understanding of roles and responsibilities both inside and outside the Scrum Team and removes common misunderstandings.
At the same time, the Scrum Team's capability to regularly deliver high quality working software can be improved by leveraging various modern DevOps practices and using smart integrated toolsets that support all roles and activities in the software development process. For that reason, the course introduces selected core engineering and technical patterns and practices like code reviews, continuous delivery and automated testing, and explains why and how they perfectly complement Scrum. Students also experience working with an integrated DevOps toolset.
With this combined approach, this course is an ideal choice for development teams that have challenges with both processes and tools. It will bring the whole team on the same page regarding Scrum, either through gaining new or refreshing their existing knowledge. Additionally, it will build their awareness around DevOps practices and tools that they should embrace to get work done.

Who Should Attend
This course is intended for all members of a Scrum Team; architects, analysts, programmers, database developers, testers, IT-Operations and others, including Scrum Masters and Product Owners. It is the perfect choice for software development teams that have challenges with both processes and tools, since it focuses on the entire team and its ability to use technology to deliver done increments of product functionality every Sprint. Experiencing the class with your whole team will improve your way of working, no matter if you are just starting with Scrum or want to improve your Scrum practices.
You should be familiar with Scrum. This is a hands-on course and you will need to bring your own laptop.
The course case study deals with a simple application and is available in various technologies (.NET, .NET Core, Java and Python).
