Applying Professional Scrum – Software Development

Learn how to apply Professional Scrum in a Software Development context in the APS-SD Training Workshop

Applying Professional Scrum™ for Software Development (APS-SD) is a 3-day hands-on course where students experience how to deliver quality software using Scrum with Agile and DevOps practices. Students work in Scrum Teams over a series of Sprints, creating code on a realistic software system to learn Scrum while using Scrum. The course, formerly known as Professional Scrum Developer, includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Developer I certification exam (PSD I).

What You Will Learn

    • Over the 3 days, students learn how to develop increments of potentially releasable functionality from a realistic Product Backlog. Students concurrently do requirements engineering, design, development, testing, integration, and deployment within a single iteration.
    • The course teaches how Agile engineering practices and supportive ALM tools improve a team’s capabilities even more.
    • The course is available in .NET and Java technologies, or trainers can work with your specific technology stack to make the course meet your specific needs. The .NET version was developed in partnership with Microsoft® and is the official Scrum training solution for Microsoft Visual Studio.
    • This is a formal Scrum.org certification course.

Why Choose Scrum.org Scrum Training

Scrum.org provides the highest quality Scrum training, training materials and certified Professional Scrum Trainers (PSTs) to teach them. Our training materials are created and maintained by Scrum co-creator Ken Schwaber, Scrum.org and the community of PSTs who teach the courses, helping to ensure that they are in tune with what’s happening in software development organizations and always up-to-date with the latest practices.

Professional Scrum Trainers bring their own style and experience to the courses but use the same materials so that students are learning from the same content regardless of who teaches the course or where it is taught around the world.  Read more about the differences.

  • Who Should Attend

    The APS for Software Development course is intended for all members of a Scrum Team involved in developing and delivering software-based systems including architects, analysts, programmers, database developers, testers, managers, IT-Operations and others, including Scrum Masters and Product Owners.

    This course provides the greatest value if the whole Scrum Team (Developers, Scrum Master, and Product Owner) attend together and experience the power of real teamwork. Teams that attend together are not only able to apply learnings to their work immediately but are also able to recall their classroom experiences to overcome particularly challenging times.

    Of course, this class is also valuable to individuals attending without their entire team. These students will experience working on a Scrum Team during the class and will be able to transfer their learnings to their teammates, often convincing their teammates of the advantages of using Scrum, Agile, and DevOps practices.
