CSD (Certified Scrum Developer)

I’ve had my eye on the course for quite some time but unfortunately I’ve never seen it offered in Canada.  So I decided to take the course in Minneapolis.

It’s a 3 day course that is very technical (i.e. you will be coding).  It focuses on many aspects as programming but the ones that stand out to me are TDD and Refactoring.

If you’re looking to obtain the CSD certification there are some additional requirements.  You will need to take an additional 2 days of Scrum training.  So if you already have the CSM certification and you take this course, you will qualify for the CSD.

I was very pleased with the outcomes of this course.  We practiced additional techniques which included pair programming and CRC.  I would highly recommend this course because I think a Scrum team practicing what I learned (in just 3 days) would be highly productive.

Here is a partial list of the technologies we used:

  • Java
  • Jenkins
  • JUnit
  • Git
  • Gradle

I hope to see more of these hands-on technical courses.
