The Braintrust Consulting Group, a worldwide leader in Agile, will host a three-day Certified Scrum Developer (CSD)-Track Two training class in San Francisco on August 5-7, 2015.

This three-day class is aimed at helping software development professionals and teams become more effective when implementing Scrum and other Agile methodologies. Attendees will learn how to create and maintain high quality systems through industry standard practices such as Test Driven Development, Continuous Integration and common software design patterns.

Braintrust specifically designed this class to deliver the core Agile Development Practices Learning Objectives of the CSD program and should prepare the participant to successfully pass the Scrum Alliance CSD Candidate Assessment. Braintrust’s approach to training incorporates activities that create a fun and interactive environment for learning in a dynamic way.

This class is ideal for software architects, developers, development managers and systems analysts who have an understanding of Scrum principles and specialized Agile engineering skills. The CSD Track Two is intended for professional software developers who are on a Scrum team and want to understand how Scrum and agile engineering practices are applied. It’s also ideal for candidates who already have their Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) certification.

In order to earn the CSD certification, the Scrum Alliance requires at least five days of formal training followed by a CSD assessment/evaluation. This class fulfills 21 of the required 35 hours and can be paired with the prerequisite Certified ScrumMaster class to complete the requirement.

Members of the Project Management Institute will earn 21 Professional Development Units (PDUs) toward maintaining their existing credentials by attending this class. To learn more about Braintrust’s Scrum certification training or to sign up for the class, please visit
