There is a key focus on having students learn how to develop increments of potentially releasable functionality from a realistic Product Backlog.

Students concurrently work together with their Scrum Teams on 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 specific technologies along with a generic technology course for developers using other technology stacks. The .NET version was developed in partnership with Microsoft® and is the official training solution for Microsoft Visual Studio.
