During this one-week Scrum Developer course, the participants get a feel of what it is like to be on a Scrum team. They will go through a one-week sprint in which they build a small application. The course is structured so that there are small lecture-introduction of practices which is immediately followed up by putting the them into practice using the one-week application. This structure is as close to agile coaching as you can get within a one-week training.
The course is five day long during which there is about 50% lecture and 50% exercise. The course cover Scrum practices such as Sprint Planning, Backlog Refinement, working as a team and a lot of technical practices such as Test-Driven Development, Continuous Integration, Acceptance Test-Driven Development, Refactoring. It also covers how to apply these practices in a legacy codebase situation.
The course assumes basic Scrum knowledge and experience with Java. Prefered pre-work is reading the Scrum Primer and the Acceptance Test-Driven Development with Robot Framework articles.
Stanly Lau is an Agile Coach in Odd-e. He previously worked as a developer and manager. He lives in an environment where IT is seen undervalued and “the only way a developer can progress is to become a manager”. This could be a reason way many people switch out of IT and he nearly got influenced by that. Instead, he searched for better ways on software development and that leads him to Agile. From then on, he enjoys helping others to produce better quality software in a sustainable way.
He is particularly interested in engineering practices like Continuous Integration, Test Driven Development and Refactoring. He is also focusing on Scrum and yearns to improve his facilitation skills so that it helps people effectively.
He likes to read technical books and do/discuss programming. On a less nerdy side, he likes making espresso, photography and inline skating.
Stanly is based in Singapore and can be contacted at stanly AT odd-e.com.
