The traditional ways of software development are getting replaced with new ones which will cater to the increasing demands of market and that which would cater well to the needs of the users and customers. One of such new model which has become very popular and well suited to this new paradigm is Agile model.
This course in Agile with Scrum introduces participants to agile methodology and the Scrum framework. Ken Schwaber, along with Jeff Sutherland, was the original creator of Scrum.
