Overview

We want to help individuals who have the desire, but not the means or opportunity, to acquire the skills they need to achieve Agile success.

Rather than charge full price ($1695 per person) for this course, we are offering the same high-quality training for a refundable fee of $75 to cover the cost of certification for eligible students.

Our Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) Lab is structured as a hands-on software development project, interleaved with lectures, demonstrations, and group discussions. Participants learn Agile practices by using them as part of a Scrum team and incrementally delivering a software product from an emergent backlog of features. Students gain hands-on experience in essential practices, including automated testing, test-driven development, refactoring, and continuous integration. Offered in Java and .NET, the course fulfills the 3-day technical training requirement that is part of earning the Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) credential from the Scrum Alliance.
