About the Certified Scrum Developer Course

Participants will come away with understanding and experience in the most important agile development practices – ready to start to introduce them in their daily work or to improve their current practice.


The course is based around sprints. During these sprints you will work in teams and experience the full range of agile development practices (testing driven development, pair programming, automated acceptance testing, refactoring, continuous integration). The practical work is interspersed with short theoretical sections and group discussion.

The course is suitable for Scrum development team members including programmers and testers. Some of the practical work requires some knowledge of Java although participants do not need to be experts.

In the Certified Scrum Developer training course, you will learn about the following topics:

  • Test-driven development

Secondly, people like you who attended our live-online Certified Scrum Developer course found it highly valuable. Here are some quotes about our training:

Simon is an outstanding agile trainer and empathic agile coach. He has vast software development experience and is a fantastic story teller. Simon skilfully introduces agile concepts and practices and knows exactly how to bring his ideas across. What fascinates me about Simon is his ability to connect with people and get a detailed sense of their needs. He shares a wealth of experience, knowledge, techniques and approaches and sows seeds of insights and a deeper understanding of Agile and lean, that truly grow and transform the way one works and collaborates. Shortly said, if you really want to transform to agile, Simon is your man.” Anna

The agility with which the host adapted to our current situation (coronavirus) by setting up the online course was a really authentic example of how to (positively) react to change.” Henrik

Simon is like a deep lake of Agile knowledge and experience, and it was a pleasure to work with him.” Marcel

“Very insightful, filled with lots of experience and real-life situations” Dennis

Finally, after the course you can book a free follow up mentoring call with the trainer to help put your new learnings into practice!

Agile Development Practices Coach and Trainer

Martin is a passionate software craftsman who likes to run CodeRetreats, and has been involved as a speaker at some of the biggest Agile and Java events in Europe: including ALE, SoCraTes, JAX and GOTO.

Martin has over 15 years’ experience in software development and helping teams to improve their development approaches and practices. He knows how important it is to create an environment, in which the participants are engaged in the learning experience, rather than just watching it happen. His workshops are hands-on, where much of the work is done by the participants.

Martin believes that in order to raise the bar in the software industry, we need to take the time to share knowledge and to learn from one another. Accordingly, he helped start the Software Craftsmanship Movement in Europe, in which he is still actively involved.

Martin holds a degree in Information Technology from the University of Paderborn, and also studied Computer Science at the Wrocław University of Technology.
