This is my first formal training on Agile Methodology. Although we have used a combination of both Waterfall and Agile methodologies in my recent projects but never used the Agile terminology. The Course content, the quiz at the end of each chapter and the Case Studies were very helpful. Thank you for putting this together.

Me gustó más el curso anterior. Creo que aprendí más. Aunque, claro, en este curso hay que aplicar mucho el conocimiento técnico al terreno práctico. En eso aun me falta un poco más de experiencia. Sigo destacando que el Docente es excelente y hace sencillos temas muchas veces difíciles o confusos de entender.

This Course and Course Material is good and only one thing want to convey is the deadline should be communicated bit earlier just a week or 10 days before communicating the deadline creates lot of problems. Other than that everything is good the Material and Approach taken towards the course.

The course is not long but very informative and helpful for anyone like me who is trying to get into

software development but has not worked in the field. I learn so much about Agile or specifically Scrum
