    Frequently Asked Questions

    What should I wear?
    Relax; this is Unicom, not Dunder Mifflin or Initech. We'll be wearing jeans, and you can be, too. 

    What should I bring?
    Just yourself. You don't need a laptop, although you are free to bring one. 

    When do we start and end each day?
    The classroom opens at 8:30 AM each day and class will begin promptly at 9:00 AM. We will end at 5:00 PM each day. 

    Will there be food?
    We'll be providing lunch, all-day beverages and snacks on both days. Vegetarian options will be available, and you are also welcome to bring in your own food. 

    Is there something I should read before the workshop?
    When you take any Unicom Scrum certification class, you will receive a bound copy of Handout. This handout is a field guide to the real-world application of scrum. We recommend you prepare for the workshop by going through the recommended readings available online. 

    I'm an introvert who is not so big on the whole audience participation thing. Will this class make me uncomfortable?
    Participation in any physical exercise is of course optional--in fact the role of "observer" is quite valuable, so feel free to participate at your ability and comfort levels. Remember, it's the software industry, so you won't be the only introvert in the room.

    Do you offer a guarantee?
    We guarantee our services unconditionally. If you aren't satisfied, we aren't either, and we'll work with you to make it right, up to and including your money back.

    What if I have more questions?
