SAFe® Agile Software Engineering

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. During this workshop-oriented 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®  Agile Software Engineer Certification.

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.
