Part of the Scrum Alliance Certified Developer Program

This course is aimed at helping software development professionals and teams be more effective when implementing Scrum and other agile software development methodologies. In an effort to raise the effectiveness of Scrum, the Scrum Alliance has created the Certified Scrum Developer program. This course is designed to deliver the core Agile Development Practices Learning Objectives of that program.


This course is intended for professional software developers who are on a Scrum team and want to understand how Scrum and agile engineering practices are applied and how they affect their role in the team. The participant should have an understanding of Scrum preferably from taking our Certified ScrumMaster Workshop or a similar course.

The Approach

One of the agile practices commonly used by Scrum teams is the breakdown of requirements into User Stories. This course was designed to meet this user story:

As a Developer on a Scrum team, I want to use Agile Engineering Practices, so that my team delivers business value with Production Quality Software in every Sprint.

To meet this goal this course meets the Scrum Alliance Learning Objectives for the Certified Scrum Developer Program in these areas:


The teamwork and collaboration on a Scrum team

Architecture and Design

The principles that drive code quality and support quick delivery of business value from testable, understandable and correct code.

Test Driven Development

Using the practice of Test First to help ensure the requirements are well understood and automated tests can be added to the build process to validate the system in the future.


The process of improving the design of software to increase the understandability and testability of the code and allow for easy and safe additions to the system in the future.

Continuous Integration

The process of creating and running automated build and test cycles as new code is checked in so that cross-application issues are discovered as soon as possible.

Course Outline

The course is structured around these user stories that provide the goals for each section:

The Developer Role In Scrum

Scrum Teamwork

As a Developer I want to work collaboratively and efficiently with the other members of my Scrum team So that the Sprint and Release Goals are achieved.

Test Driven Development

As a Developer I want to write small tests then write the code to pass the tests and clean up the code So that I can work quickly and efficiently.

Agile Architecture
