|The Camp Scrum Experience — April 19 - 24, 2009|
Imagine having a whole week together with four of the most authoritative personalities in Agile software development today... Not only a week of seminars, but a week of living with the experts, and of informal discussions of everyday practical problems of project management... Imagine gaining deep insights into the fundamentals of Scrum and Agile that could make all the difference in the world on your current project... Imagine being able to discuss these issues with others like you who bring their experiences to this event... Then imagine it all taking place in a beautiful rural Swedish setting, surrounded by nature...
If you can imagine this, you can imagine Camp Scrum.
Camp Scrum provides ScrumMaster Certification, Product Owner Certification, as well as training in Agile Use Cases, Agile Architecture, Agile Testing, Lean Development, Scrum Failure Modes, Organizational Patterns, and other topics. Four sessions a day and Birds of a Feather sessions at night (along with plenty of beer and wine) provide an intense immersion experience in Agile practice.
What will you learn at Camp Scrum?You will learn about the history of Agile and Scrum, but will quickly move into the details of the Scrum flow and the roles of Scrum. There are sessions on Agile estimation, on the finesse behind the product backlog, release planning, and sprint planning. We will also go into advanced concepts like Scrum scaling, Agile Use Cases, Agile Testing, Agile Architecture, Usability, and the application of XP practices under Scrum. Assorted topics include Lean development, tools to support Scrum development, Organizational Patterns, and retrospectives. You can find more details in the tentative camp schedule. (But remember, we inspect and adapt, so this schedule might evolve in response to your input.)
WhenCheck in starts Sunday, 19 April and check-out is the following Friday.
Who should attend?Anyone who wants to know more about Scrum, and how to run a good Scrum. The class is suitable for Managers, Product Owners, ScrumMasters, Team Members, Project Managers, and others. Many of the attendees in the last Camp Scrum were already Certified ScrumMasters doing Scrum. Others were managers wanting to roll out Scrum globally. The few that were new to Scrum kept everyone focused on the basics of doing it right and doing it well. One Certified ScrumMaster commented, "After this, how will you ever be able to do Scrum Certification in two days again?"
RequirementsYou should have read one of the Scrum books written by Ken Schwaber (click on the books for detailed information from amazon.com).
It would also be useful to read the latest draft of Jeff Sutherland's new book, The Scrum Papers.
Price : 5.900 EuroThe price includes access to all sessions. It also includes lodging, food, and beverages. You will receive a ScrumMaster certification. Lodging will either be in the main house or in a nearby house. You will get your own room, even if most rooms are double rooms. Restrooms are shared.
LocationStora Nyteboda (www.nyteboda.dk) in southern Sweden, a 2 hour drive from Copenhagen Airport. Please a look at the photos, maps, etc. on the web site. If required we will arrange transportation from Copenhagen airport.
The camp staff will also be there in the evening to socialize, so we can hang out, play table fooball, watch TV, listen to music or whatever we decide to do. The last Camp Scrum decided to run Agile Birds of a Feather discussions every evening. It was intensely fun!
We hope to see you there!
