On September 13 & 14, Mike Bowler is presenting “Writing Defect-Free Code Faster” at the Courtyard Mariot in Toronto, Ontario.
This Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) class gives developers the techniques and methods needed to directly apply Scrum processes to development.
“15 years ago, to develop something in 6 months was okay,” Mike said when I interviewed him on the phone recently. “But now, something can be in production in 20 minutes. The world has changed and we need to go with it.”
The Scrum Alliance website describes the course as aiming to support software developers (programmers) who are building software in a Scrum environment.
“The goal is to expose students to the most important tools and techniques that need to be applied in order to build good software in the iterative and incremental fashion that Scrum requires. These ideas are central to the entire field of Agile software development.”
Mike said that in an agile organization if the developers are not aware of the agile process behind Scrum they will not be developing at full capacity. This course gives them the tools they need to be able to develop faster and with less defects.
