What you'll learn in this agile training:

You've heard the term Agile, but what does it really mean and how does it all work? In the first half of the class we'll go over Agile fundamentals. This includes the guiding philosophy, the "rituals", and how to get a team up and running using Agile principals. The second half of the class will focus on the product owner role within Agile. 

Specifically we focus on how to write good user stories. This will be hands on and you'll get plenty of practice writing user stories that can be given to development. We'll end the class by breaking into teams and running a retrospective. Expect to walk out of class with ideas that you can bring to your own team on Monday.


In this bootcamp, we’ll:

  • Identify the different stages and roles of Scrum and a sprint cycle.
  • Describe best practices of Agile project management.
  • Examine the pros and cons of Agile development.
  • Write an effective user story, and acceptance criteria.
  • Explain the importance of good documentation.
  • Write user stories and acceptance criteria that are ready for estimation
