Agile/Scrum Developer Boot Camp

Agile/Scrum Developer Boot Camp


5 Days


The Agile developer is the core of any product development effort. However, for an Agile developer to be successful within an Agile environment, it is not as simple as prescribing a series of steps. They need to learn and practice a plethora of process and development methodologies in order to truly exploit the power of Agile principles.

This course teaches the participant how to apply Agile principles using Scrum and other methodologies. The course is holistic and encompasses the process and techniques from requirements to design to testing, developing and continuous integration in order to reach the goal of delivering high quality software rapidly. Our instructors are experts in their field who teach through personal experience and include case studies and in-class labs.

Fully Integrated Simulation: This course has a simulation weaved throughout each day of the course that gives the participants hands on experience through each step of the process and development concepts.

This course is set in two parts:

  1. Process: Teaches the process of Scrum and the developer’s role within it
  2. Development: Teaches Agile and other best practice development techniques
