Attendees, including technical teams, agile developers, project managers, advanced users and plugin developers will spend three days together, collaborating, exploring and networking.
cPrime’s Agile Practice Lead, Kevin Thompson, is hosting the Agile training track on Scrum and Kanban with GreenHopper. The class will give users an introduction to Agile best practices and how to use Atlassian tools to implement them. Topics include planning feature development for a Scrum team, applying Kanban for maintenance releases or queue based teams, and scaling Agile in an Enterprise. Users will learn how to interpret reports and drive continuous improvement within their teams. The intended audiences are ScrumMasters, Product Owners, Project Managers or anyone in a queue-based role such as Operations. The training does not require any prior knowledge of GreenHopper.
GreenHopper adds Agile project management to any JIRA project for software development teams practicing Scrum or Kanban. GreenHopper helps users with Scrum and Kanban planning, visualizing and managing workflow, estimating and planning sprints, and monitoring and reporting burndown charts. The tool allows for a simple integration and set up with universal JIRA plugins.
Kevin Thompson has been working with and training Agile development teams for over five years and has thorough understanding of the GreenHopper tool along with the pain points of Agile tool adoption. His training will bring practical knowledge to users through exercises and activities to show how to overcome pains such as distributed teams, hybrid projects and agile planning. Unlike conventional feature-based training, Kevin’s students will work through real-life scenarios to define requirements, plan work, and track progress, across all roles in the project.
