Understand and implement software engineering

The discipline of software engineering has evolved in recent decades with the adoption of Lean-Agile and DevOps principles and practices. New skills and approaches are helping organizations deliver software-centric solutions faster, more predictably, and with higher quality.

During this three-day training (remote four-day), you will learn the fundamental principles and practices of Agile software engineering. You will learn how modern practices such as XP, Behavioral-Driven Development (BDD), and Test-Driven Development (TDD) drive continuous value creation and improve quality. You will learn methods to detail, model, design, implement, test, and validate stories in a SAFe Continuous Delivery pipeline. You will also learn how software engineering fits into the larger solution context and the role you play in architect collaboration and DevOps.
