This three-day course provides Project Managers, Scrum Masters and Team Leads the essential skills required to effectively manage a software development project using Azure DevOps.

This course focuses on Agile methodologies and includes discussions and content focused on both Scrum and Kanban practices. We look at how Azure DevOps supports the team during the sprint planning and daily Scrum events, as well as how to create and manage the product backlog and sprint backlog artefacts.

In this course, attendees will plan a new software development project and go through the steps to initiate the project using Azure DevOps. This includes recording requirements, creating a product backlog and estimating effort for backlog items. We’ll cover planning and running a sprint as well as using the task board and burndown chart to track progress.

The course also covers using storyboards to prototype experiences, requesting stakeholder feedback, team collaboration and reporting.

This course includes hands-on labs to reinforce practical skills and ensure you’re ready to use the tools on your return to your workplace. All Scrum content adheres to the latest version of the official Scrum Guide and provides helpful preparation for anyone considering gaining Scrum certification.

Chaminda Chandrasekara, Visual Studio ALM MVP, Scrum Alliance Certified ScrumMaster will be the trainer for this course. The course registration will be on a first come first served basis and it will be limited. The details can be obtained by calling FITIS Secretariat on 011 2665261.
