Many Scrum teams face a great challenge even to comply with the basic premise of Scrum: They fail to deliver a potentially shippable product after every sprint. In our 3-day Agile Engineering Course we teach developers modern engineering practices which complement the Scrum Process.
Often we get the question what do we do in our trainings? Especially how we can help companies which "do" Scrum already. So we decided to create a loose series of blog posts presenting some insights from our trainings :-)
Many Scrum teams face a great challenge even to comply with the basic premise of Scrum: They fail to deliver a potentially shippable product after every sprint.

In pair programming, two developers work together in front of one screen (or two, as long as they both look at the same screen) to get a task done faster and with higher quality. Just like a driving a car, there are two roles in
the pair: The driver, who has the steering wheel, aka the keyboard in her hand, and the navigator who knows where to go and which crossroads lie ahead. As you want to switch these roles every now and then, it is very helpful to have two keyboards and mice attached to the computer you are ...
