Certified ScrumDeveloper® (CSD)
- Duration: 16 hours
- Skill Level: All level
- Language: English
This immersive, forty-hour training program contains a set of three comprehensive courses that provides the knowledge and skill to become a successful Scrum developer and a valuable member of a Scrum development team.
In our first course, Scrum Framework Developer Essentials, we’ll explore Scrum Framework and how it supports faster and simpler software development. In Design Pattern Developer Essentials, we’ll discover a core set of design patterns that every developer should know. The program concludes with the popular Scrum Software Developer Essentials course, in which you’ll learn how to write higher quality code more quickly and with fewer defects using practices from Extreme Programming (XP) that include test-first development, refactoring, and emergent design, as well as a variety of Agile problem-solving techniques.
You’ll be taken on a guided tour through essential developer practices, such as story writing, sprint planning, pair programming and test driven development. You’ll learn how to discover patterns in problems and to implement designs as needed.
Well also explore the principles behind the practices so you understand how to use them to make the best design choices, and you’ll gain a powerful framework for encapsulating and abstracting virtually any problem for maximum flexibility, without over complicating the solution.
By exploring the secrets of high-performance, cross-functional development teams you’ll gain a shared design vocabulary for dramatically improving inter-team communication that can be applied equally well to new development and to maintaining or extending existing systems. Then we’ll put theory into practice and apply your new skills by building the core of an application using the expert-level techniques you learned for rapidly writing quality software.
By the end of this training program you’ll be armed with several new, effective tools and techniques for Scrum development that will make your software more robust, manageable, and easier to extend.
- This course is for all team members, and has the greatest impact when the entire team attends. This course will benefit Architects, DBAs, Designers, Developers, Development Managers, Directors, Product Managers, Programmers, QA Engineers, Software Engineers, Technical Analysts, Technical Leads, Technical Writers, and Testers. Familiarity with basic Object-Oriented (OO) concepts and terminology is recommended. Participants who successfully complete the programming exercises in the Scrum Software Developer Essentials training are eligible to become a Certified Scrum Developer, and require the ability to write simple programs in Java or in C Sharp.
- Covers essential elements of Scrum for software developers: Scrum principles, values, and framework; artifacts, story writing, collaboration, estimation and planning, and coaching and facilitation. Hands-on exercises include story writing, defining acceptance tests, estimation and sprint planning. See the full course description for Scrum Framework Developer Essentials.
- Covers Agile principles and patterns: approaches to design, key principles, problem-solving techniques, seeing patterns by what they encapsulate, discovering patterns in problems, design exercise, what patterns teach us, emergent design, and refactoring to patterns. Includes an in-depth design exercise and debrief. See the full course description for Design Pattern Essentials for Developers.
- Covers essential practices from Scrum and XP: continuous integration, pair programming, coding standards, test-first development (TDD), red-green-refactor, using TDD to inform design, code qualities, discovering design patterns, conducting code reviews, essential Scrum developer practices, writing testable code, advanced testing techniques, refactoring legacy code, emerging solutions. Includes six hands-on programming exercises in Java and C Sharp.
