I attended the SAFe Agilist class hosted by Lead Agile Solutions head trainer Vijayan, and I was really hugely impressed by his experience in Agile methodologies. Vijayan has a deep understanding of SAFe implementations and importantly is able to articulate this in an appealing and understandable way. Everyone talks Agile, but he was able to correlate each concept in Agile to real-world scenarios. He was able to explain how to scale the concept to larger programs both clearly and concisely. His book ‘Unlocking the Science Behind Agile’ is additionally a great read for those wishing to get even further perspective of some of the principles with really drive Agile. Thanks for helping with the course and also always spreading positivity around.

Description

The discipline of software engineering has evolved over the past decades with the introduction of Lean-Agile and DevOps principles and practices. New skills and approaches help organizations deliver software-centric solutions faster, more predictably, and with higher quality. During this three-day, workshop-oriented course, attendees learn the foundational principles and practices that make up the Agile Software Engineering discipline.

Attendees will learn how continuous flow of value delivery and building in quality are enabled by modern practices including XP technical practices, Behavioral-Driven Development (BDD), and Test-Driven Development (TDD). Attendees will learn proven practices to detail, model, design, implement, verify, and validate stories in a SAFe Continuous Delivery Pipeline. They will know the practices that build quality into code (abstraction, encapsulation, intentional programming) and designs (SOLID, Design patterns). Attendees will also understand how Software Engineering fits into the larger solution context and their role in collaborating on intentional architecture and DevOps.

Learning Goals

To perform the role of a SAFe® 4 Agile Software Engineer attendees should be able to:

  • Define Agile Software Engineering and the underlying values, principles, and practices
  • Apply the Test-First principle to create alignment between tests and requirements
  • Create shared understanding with Behavior-Driven Development (BDD)
  • Communicate with Agile modeling
  • Design from context for testability
  • Build applications with code and design quality
  • Utilize the test infrastructure for automated testing
  • Collaborate on intentional architecture and emergent design
  • Apply Lean-Agile Principles to optimize the flow of value
  • Create an Agile Software Engineering plan

Topics Covered

  • Introduction to Agile Software Engineering
  • Connecting Principles, and Practices to Built-In Quality
  • Accelerating Flow
  • Applying Intentional Architecture
  • Thinking Test-First
  • Discovering Story Details
  • Creating a Shared Understanding with Behavior-Driven Development (BDD)
  • Communicating with Models
  • Building Systems with Code Quality
  • Building Systems with Design Quality
  • Implementing with Quality

What Attendees Get

The class registration includes:

  • Digital workbook
  • Preparation and eligibility to take the exam – Exam fee included
  • One-year membership to the SAFe Community Platform
  • Certification of completion
  • Certified SAFe® 4 Agile Software Engineer certification upon passing of exam
  • One Certification exam attempt (re-takes at an additional fee)
  • A complimentary copy of Unlocking the Science Behind Agile by Vijayan (VJ) Seenisamy

Who will benefit?

This course targets the technical members of an Agile Team – developers and testers. Product Owners, Scrum Master, Managers, and others with a less technical background would also be very beneficial as they would gain an understanding of the development process so that team collaboration will become more effective.

Prerequisites

All are welcome to attend the course, regardless of experience. However, meeting the following prerequisites will make the training more productive.

  • Understanding of SAFe for Teams
  • Background in engineering, development, managing development, or quality assurance
