Announcement: Certified Scrum Master Class for Video Game Developers

Mike Cohn has opened registration for a Certified Scrum Master Class for Video Game Developers. I'll be joining him to teach the class in Austin May 8-9th.

This two-day course not only provides the fundamental principles of Scrum, it also gives participants hands-on experience using Scrum for video game development. This course puts theory into action through a variety of exercises. During the course, attendees will learn why such a seemingly simple process such as Scrum can have such profound effects on an organization. Participants gain practical experience working with Scrum tools and activities such as the product backlog, sprint backlog, daily Scrum meetings, sprint planning meeting, and burndown charts. Participants leave knowing how to apply Scrum to all sizes of projects, from a single collocated team to a large, highly distributed team.

This is just one class with limited seating.

Would you suggest this seminar for someone new to Scrum?... I want to bring scrum-methodologies back to Mexico, and will try to get an interesting seminar happening down here, but Mike tells me he's already booked for the year. He he he.

My interest is in games, and I do work on interactive media. But maybe I should start by a more general seminar?.

Hi Hector,

This course would be ideal for you. The examples are focused on games, but any highly cross-discipline interactive media application will benefit from this focus.
