Deliver quality by becoming a SAFe Agile Software Engineer
During the SAFe Agile Software Engineering course you will learn the foundational principles and practices that make up the Agile Software Engineering discipline. Completing the exam, you will earn a SAFe® 4 Agile Software Engineer Certification. The discipline of software engineering has evolved over the past decades with the introduction of Lean-Agile and DevOps principles and practices. New skills and approaches help organizations deliver software-centric solutions faster, more predictably, and with higher quality.
You will learn how continuous flow of value delivery and building quality in are enabled by modern practices including XP technical practices, Behavioral-Driven Development (BDD), and Test-Driven Development (TDD). Moreover, you will learn proven practices to detail, model, design, implement, verify, and validate stories in a SAFe Continuous Delivery Pipeline. IN addition, you learn the practices that build quality into code (abstraction, encapsulation, intentional programming) and designs (SOLID, Design patterns) and understand how Software Engineering fits into the larger solution context and their role in collaborating on intentional architecture and DevOps.
During the SAFe Agile Software Engineering course you will learn how to:
- Define Agile Software Engineering and the underlying values, principles, and practices
- Apply the Test-First principle to create alignment between tests and requirements
- Create shared understanding with Behavior-Driven Development (BDD)
- Communicate with Agile modeling
- Design from context for testability
- Build applications with code and design quality
- Utilize the test infrastructure for automated testing
- Collaborate on intentional architecture and emergent design
- Apply Lean-Agile Principles to optimize the flow of value
- Create an Agile Software Engineering plan
Attendees who pass the certification exam will receive:
- SAFe® 4 Agile Software Engineer certificate
- A SAFe® 4 Agile Software Engineer digital badge to promote your accomplishment online
- A one-year certified membership as a SAFe® 4 Agile Software Engineer, which includes access to the ASE Community of Practice
- Access to a variety of learning resources to support certified professionals during their SAFe journey
If you do not pass for the exam and want to try it again, each retake attempt costs $50.
