In this two day course you will use Scrum to build a new application, learning how it feels to be part of a Scrum team and how Scrum works. The course is a mix of exercises, lecture and open discussion. Along with the exercises, the course itself is run using a Scrum-like process with a product backlog, estimates, and even acceptance criteria giving students a chance to see how we handle changing requirements in Scrum.
