295 Madison Ave., 35 FL
Geared toward web developers new to the SCRUM method this workshop with Scrum26 will help you become confident about joining a development team using Scrum, or integrating Scrum into your own enterprise. Notoriously “simple to understand, difficult to master” (Scrum Guideline) we will help dissolve the intricacies of applying Scrum in practice.
Programming language agnostic, those of all software development backgrounds and from different industries are welcome.* Attendees will receive a certificate upon completion of the course.
In this hands on session we’ll introduce Scrum and Agile then start a basic scrum framework which includes understanding roles and processes, creating a product backlog, and planning sprints. We’ll go through background, terminology, key processes and documents involved. Concepts such as self organization, cross functionality and efficiency will be emphasized. Also:
- Steps in the scrum process including user stories
- People and parts of frame work
- Feedback loops
Putting this information into play we will practice 5 Sprints in a fast-paced setting to become proficient and comfortable with the process, so that you can confidently integrate an agile organization. After an introduction the class will occur as follows:**
- Product Backlog Refinement Meeting #1
- Sprint #1: Terminology & Artifacts
- Sprint #2: Processes
- Sprint #3: 3 Scrum Pillars
- Open Q&A
- Sprint #4: Tying it all together
- Sprint #5: Practice
- Notes, Q&A & Next Steps
What You’ll Take Away

About Scrum26: SCRUM26 is dedicated to teaching and improving distributed teamwork. It focuses on making developers into better communicators, and masters of self-management. The original scrum techniques was developed for co-located teams, who can take advantage of constant face-to-face interaction. Today more and more development teams are distributed, and we believe that with some rigor and practice, remote work can be just as effective and pleasurable!

As a web developer, this was my first exposure to the Scrum and Agile method. The hands-on practice in the class was great - it really helped put new tools into play. Also, I was impressed by all the preparation done by Stephane, the instructor, who has a unique engineering and business background having led scrum teams for more than 10 years. He made sure to gather material on each student attendee (eg GitHub handle, etc) before class in order to effectively put them into teams. The class was small -- less than 10 students -- but I suspect more will catch on.
