I took the 3 days Certified Scrum Developer course at Knowledge hut and overall I had an enriching experience. The class size was good with 25-30 folks in there. The course was well-organized and distributed across the 3 days. Before this training, I had kind of informal understanding about Scrum. However, post this training my knowledge about Scrum and Agile principles has formalized and has been given a better shape.

Alex is a fantastic trainer. I did not have much expectation from the training but I have learned a lot in the training. Not only I got to know more about Scrum and its tools but also where to use it and where not to. Alex has immense knowledge in scrum having spent more than a decade as a Scrum Professional. I would recommend everyone to register for this course who wants to know about Scrum processes & practises.
