Ken Schwaber, co-inventor of Scrum, and Sam Guckenheimer, Group Product Planner for Visual Studio discuss the Professional Scrum Developer (PSD) program around VS 2010. PSD includes a unique and intensive five-day experience for software developers. The
course guides teams on how to turn product requirements into potentially shippable increments of software using Visual Studio 2010, the Scrum framework, and modern software engineering practices.
Ken and Sam talk about how Scrum.org and Microsoft collaborated on a new standard to make development teams more effective. Rather than treat process, tooling and engineering practices as separate topics and leaving their application as follow-up homework,
both organizations saw the need to make teams effective in the application within a training setting. PSD classes are available worldwide at VS 2010 launch from certified trainers who are assessed, trained, mentored, and monitored by Scrum.org and Microsoft.
