Full Course Description
Scrum will be experienced through a combination of lecture, demonstration, discussion, and hands-on exercises. Attendees will learn how to do Scrum correctly while being coached and critiqued by the instructor.
This course is suitable for any member of a software development team—architect, programmer, database developer, tester, etc. Entire teams are encouraged to attend and experience the course together, but individuals are welcome too.
Attendees will self-organize to form cross- functional Scrum teams. These teams require an aggregate of skills specific to the selected case study. Please see the last page of this document for specific details.
