This training is one of the three building blocks on the way to the Certified Scrum Developer (CSD). To obtain this certification, you have to acquire skills and practice in the fields of Scrum, effective work in a Scrum team, and modern, agile engineering skills to an extent of 5 days training. The first two elements must cover a minimum of two days and can be acquired optionally through a CSM certification. Engineering skills require at least a three-day training, such as this one.

About this Workshop

Within these three days you will get to know agile software development and Scrum by real experience. We will run several sprints in which we plan, test, develop and deploy into production. We work interactively in small groups to learn and to practice the techniques and methods. We will discuss, exchange experiences, and contrast the results with others.

Who should attend?

This training is intended for all people who are or who would like to be working in a Scrum development team. In particular, the course is aimed at developers and testers (according to the classical role models) as most of the contents are suitable for this target group. Additionally, it is intended for developers with experience in the field of Java and general web technologies

The participants will learn the modern engineering techniques as well as how to use them in daily practice as a team. This does not only improve the productivity and the quality but it also makes work less stressful and the team more motivated.

Preconditions and technology

The participants should have experience in the field of Java SE6 and basic knowledge about web development. Moreover, the ability to use an IDE (e.g. Eclipse) is required. During the course, we will develop a web application based on Java 7, Apache Tomcat, JPA/Hibernate and Java server pages (JSP). For this purpose, a basic framework is provided which will be extended by the participants. An understanding of the fundamental work with version control is recommendable. In the training, we will work with subversion or Git and Jenkins (introduction included in the course).

The participants are asked to bring their own notebook with an available version of the Java Development Kit (Java 6 JDK). The trainer will provide an image for the installation of Eclipse 3.6 (or higher) and the other Open Source tools (Werkzeuge) that are needed (Windows, Mac OS X and Linux). If you do not have appropriate equipment, please inform us in time as we can also provide notebooks for the training (Linux).
