Combine Lean-Agile principles with cutting edge software development methods
Developments in software engineering are often the driving force behind organizational change. Over the past decades, the discipline has evolved with the introduction of Lean-Agile and DevOps principles and practices. Become a SAFe Agile Software Engineer and learn new skills and approaches to help your company deliver software-centric solutions that improve speed and quality.
This three-day SAFe Agile Software Engineering course will teach you the foundational principles and practices that make up the Agile Software Engineering discipline. You will gain a thorough understanding of how continuous flow of value delivery and building quality are enabled by modern practices including XP technical practices, Behavioral-Driven Development (BDD), and Test-Driven Development (TDD).
You will also study 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.
The SAFe Agile Software Engineering training (ASE) teaches you all about the new skills and approaches that help organizations deliver software-centric solutions faster, more predictably, and with higher quality. After taking the SAFe Agile Software Engineering exam, you’ll certify as a SAFe® Agile Software Engineer.
Our SAFe Agile Software Engineering courses are taught by one or two SPCs (SAFe Program Consultants) or even SPCTs (SAFe Program Consultant Trainers). These inspiring trainers are consultants who are active in the field and have extensive SAFe experience in training and implementing SAFe at large organizations.
During this three-day course you will learn 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
