Certified Scrum Developer (CSD)

Why Certified Scrum Developer training? Without the technical practices, Scrum will fail. Your team will perhaps build and demo software quickly, but will it be quality code that’s easy to maintain? If QA barely got the new features tested, how will they stay on top of the next set of new features AND regression test the last set?

This Scrum Developer training track covers, hands-on, the technical practices that enable teams to build quickly, iteratively AND sustainably. These courses are the right choice for all team members who are involved in creating your software solutions.

When Scott Dunn, the founder of Rocket Nine Solutions, was a manager he would suggest these technical practices to his team members, but couldn’t walk them through it as an expert. In his experience, they need someone with the technical chops to sit down with them and walk them through it, hands-on. Our Technical Coach, Paul Moore, brings years of direct experience using these practices to ship successful software solutions. From single team start-ups to enterprise organizations where many teams participate in the product delivery. Having someone who can work with your developers in their codebase is key in applying these new techniques to their unique situations.

Not only that, but much of DevOps is built on a solid foundation of the Automated Testing and Continuous Integration practices. Getting these practices down within each sprint is the first step towards realizing the promise of DevOps.

With all these practices, many of them drawn from Extreme Programming, I treat them as tools in my toolbox. I don’t always need a hammer, I don’t always need a screwdriver, but having those tools, when I can apply them in the right situation, they really are effective.
