Certified Scrum Developer Training

Professional Scrum Developer Training

This program introduces Agile Values & Principles, Scrum Framework, Acceptance Test Driven Development, Behavior Driven Development, Test Driven Development, Refactoring, Emergent Design, Agile Architecture, Collaboration, and refactoring techniques to the audience and follows a life cycle approach where participants get to learn how to practice these in real life projects. Participants learn to implement TDD on a project developing in either java, .net, ruby, python or C++ framework. Workshop also covers how to effectively work on legacy code and break dependencies. Expected business outcome is readable, maintainable code going forward as well reduction is defects.

  • How TDD helps you design software
  • Why testing first is better than testing after
  • Overview of Refactoring, Clean Code principle and Refactoring to Patterns
  • Software design – going deeper in SOLID design Principles
  • How to use mocking frameworks
  • Behavior Driven Development using SpecFlow/Cucumber
  • Specification by Examples using Gherkin language
  • Writing Scenarios and Scenario Outlines
