CSD Certified Scrum Developer (.Net)

This hands-on course will give you an understanding of how technical teams work together in Scrum, using behaviour-driven development (BDD) and test-driven development (TDD) to produce high-quality software products to agreed customer requirements. Some intentional architecture and design is included, coupled with the discipline of constant refactoring to improve the effectiveness of your approach. You will also learn how to lock-down the quality of your projects using continuous integration (CI) and increase deployment speed with continuous delivery (CD).  You will leave the session with the tools you need to work individually or as a part of a team to create, and maintain excellent, high-quality software products.

This workshop is highly interactive and contains a large proportion of hands-on development exercises and demonstrations. A practical project runs throughout the course. It is aimed at those with experience of programming in a common OO language, preferably with some prior experience of Agile. 

Please note that this course will be run on .Net. Students are required to be equipped with laptops pre-installed with .Net. Full instructions regarding preparation required for the course are included in the "How Should You Prepare" section and will be provided with Course Joining Instructions.
