NOTE: Season 2 will be led by Nancy A S, Senior Percolator. This second season of Agile Appetizer will focus on How to Become an Agile Project Manager.
Eight video-based modules ... eight weeks ... summer school.
Why this topic? Because agile is now the most in-demand skill. While agile is not a "technology," it is a methodology used in technology development. Agile is now listed in more job descriptions in the Boston area than any other technical skill.
Knowing how to implement agile-based projects is valuable to your career growth and future job prospects.
Self-Study Group Format
The format of a virtual self-study group is as follows:
NOTE: There is no classroom instruction. There are no webcasts. There are no scheduled appointments of any kind.
• Each participant obtains access to Lynda.com and registers for the Become a Agile Project Manager learning path.
• Each participant commits to view one course per week, complete the exercises and post links to your completed work.
• Each participant obtains assistance by posting questions to a discussion area set up on the Boston PHP Message Board for each chapter. Each participant will receive feedback, as well as, a weekly group e-mail update.
Once you have access to Lynda.com, you simply proceed at a pace that best fits into your current work/life schedule. Lynda.com is available for FREE to Boston Public Library members!
