Overview

Learn how to apply core Agile software development practices to SharePoint in this interactive 3-day course. From gaining stakeholder buy in, to facilitating requirements, design, and build using joint application development (JAD)/rapid application development (RAD) sessions, planning migration, managing quality, and developing training and communication, you'll develop the skills you need to deliver successful SharePoint applications. Practical and realistic hands-on exercises and activities will allow you to master an agile approach to SharePoint development and enhance your core business analyst skills. Working in groups, you and your peers will role play to develop a SharePoint application for a "case study" line of business department, from requirements to go live.

This class is designed for SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint 365 users. Labs are conducted in SharePoint 2013 and will be updated to the SharePoint 2016 environment as of June/July 2016.
