Definitely that was the best course I ever attended !
See the photos here.
I guess I lost my fear about to flight 😉
As you may know I am a Senior Software Engineer that is passionated about software and technology, and I’ve been studying agile practices for while, XP, Lean, an SCRUM in special.
Last weekend I attended to a Scrum Master Training in São Paulo ( I am the first guy of the right side ) :
Indeed that was one of the greatest experiences I ever had in my life. There I could learn more about what exactly is scrum and how to do scrum. It’s funny how we can mis concept things, or do the right thing on the wrong way.
The course was great, and I don’t have words to thank Boris, Peter and Danilo about the teachings and experiences shared with us. I am deep happy because I could improve myself a lot there, learning how setup a scrum team, plan, prioritize, estimate, rules, deliver as fast as possible ( with quality ! ), measure the teams productivity, run retrospectives, auto organization and so on. Besides that I had a great time with my classmates, that are clever and skills full people, and they help me a lot also with their questions and experiences.
It’s really a mindset shift ! We were driven to think on a different way that we are used to think.
There we saw how scrum run things better than the traditional project management way, and we realize why scrum is much more superior than the old fashioned traditional software development, that is chaotic by nature.
Another point is that I have no words to describe how good trainer Boris is, because he could answer all my questions about how scrum can solve the issues related to software development, such as fixed price/time contracts, big projects, measurement, estimative, planning and more. Peter has also contributed a lot with his experience as a scrum coach, and Danilo’s presentation about how they implemented scrum at globo.com was priceless !
Many thanks to all of you people, and I hope we can meet again soon !!!!
