    • This course fulfills the Technical skills requirement on the Certified Scrum Developer track.

    This course is for Agile Software Development and TDD ON THE JAVA PLATFORM.

    This course provides hands-on instruction in the vital Agile software engineering and eXtreme Programming practices that are employed by Scrum teams. Detailed examination and demonstration of Agile development and testing techniques provides a firm theoretical understanding of the benefits and pitfalls of working in an Agile team. Practical exercises based on working case study scenarios enable delegates to explore and experience Agile development and testing first hand, giving them the level of true understanding required to employ the techniques successfully back in the workplace.

    This course course will benefit software developers and testers who wish to employ Agile software development practices using the Java platform. The course is also available for .NET - however this course is based on Java only. It is highly recommended that delegates attending this course have a prior awareness and understanding of Agile team practices, including User Stories and Iteration Planning.

    Booking Policy
    Bookings are confirmed on receipt of full payment in advance of the course.
