Hi all,

The Art of Agile training course comes to NYC for the first time. April 23 - 27. Early bird through March 2nd, save $400! 

Learn from James Shore, author of The Art of Agile Development and Diana Larsen, author of Agile Retrospectives and Liftoff, themselves on how to deliver features in days rather than weeks or months; use liftoffs to align teams from the start; take TDD to the next level.

Perfect for both developers and non-developers because the course forms cross-functional teams. Developers, On-Site Customers, Testers, Scrum Masters/PMs work in groups. See first hand how using a shared language benefits the entire team and full software development process.

To register, go to -

The Art of Agile can be taken as a full week immersion or you can take the Planning or Delivery course. Here's what you'll learn -

The Art of Agile Planning

In this two-day course, you'll learn everything you need to know to plan an Agile project. After completing the course, you will be prepared to:

  • Conduct a daily stand-up.
  • Create and prioritize stories, tasks, and minimum marketable features.
  • Make reliable iteration commitments and predict iteration velocity.
  • Customize your long-term planning horizons to the need of your organization.
  • Make release predictions for coordinating with third parties.
  • Adapt your plans to create and take advantage of opportunities.

The Art of Agile Delivery

In this three-day course, you will experience creating and delivering software in a real-world Agile environment. After completing the course, you will be prepared to:

  • Build and ship software weekly.
  • Understand and accommodate stakeholders and their diverse opinions.
  • Work in a cross-functional team with on-site customers, testers, and programmers.
  • Prevent build failures with continuous integration.
  • Incrementally build technical infrastructure alongside features.
  • Create nearly bug-free code using test-driven development, refactoring, and exploratory testing.

I'm happy to answer any questions. Please email me at [address removed]
