Important Agile Programming Course Information

  • Requirements

    • Prior to attending this course, attendees should have attended:
    • Experience in programming, preferably in a modern (object based or object oriented) programming language
    • A broad understanding of the software development lifecycle
  • Recommended Experience

    • This is a course not just for programmers, but for testers (particularly automation testers), and software designers that then implement their designs.
  • Software

    • For in-class examples we use the Microsoft toolkit: the C# programming language with Visual Studio, Microsoft's Team Foundation Server for tracking agile workflow, and the Git version control system for versioning and teaching branching and merging strategies.
  • Course Preparation

    • Students will be emailed a short document to review before class. Understanding the content of this pre-course reading is required before class, so more in-class time can be devoted to the role of the programmer.
  • Certification & Exam Information

    • ICAgile: To obtain the ICAgile certification, students will need to pass the Learning Tree exam. Learning Tree customer service will process your registration with ICAgile once the exam has been passed., please allow 10 business days.
