User Story Workshop and Kanban Essentials training classes are entry-level classes targeted to those interested in learning the benefits of Scrum and Agile practices with no pre-requisites. The Test Driven Development class is open to software developers with programming knowledge who seek to fulfill Scrum Developer certification.

User Story Workshop (October 1-8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) class is a one-day in-depth focus on how to gather Agile requirements and document them as User Stories. This class is ideal for business analysts, product managers/owners, and anyone who wants to understand how to adapt this Agile best practice.

Kanban Essentials (October 2-8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) is a one-day in-depth, interactive immersion into the world of Kanban that requires no prerequisites.

This class is ideal for Project Managers, software development managers, senior IT leadership (Directors/VPs/CIOs/CTOs) and anyone interested in enhancing workflow.

Test Driven Development (October 3-8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) is a one-day in-depth immersion into a new way of thinking when designing and developing applications with the end goal of integrating new functionality into a working system.

Prerequisites require participants have knowledge of the .Net framework and experience developing in C# or VB.Net with Microsoft Visual Studio and a fundamental understanding of practical Object Oriented Programming practices.
