A product backlog is an artifact that captures the entire body of work pertaining to an application. This is the most significant artifact for a Scrum, Kanban, Scrumban or any other Agile framework team since all the work that an Agile team does emanates from or is related to what is in their product backlog. And this is why, when it comes to creating, updating, and maintaining a product backlog, it needs to ample diligence and focus. This 2 + hourscourse is aimed atteaching you all you need to know about creating, updating & maintaining anAgileproduct backlog.I believe that learning by doing is one of the most powerful ways of gaining knowledge and that is basis of how Idesigned this course. In this course you will learn by doing i.e you will learn how to createan actual product backlog for an e-commerce web application. You will see how to create a product backlog from organically from scratch and learn how to incorporate and address various aspects and actions pertaining to a product backlog such as identification and breaking down an application into user stories, epics and themes, writing of such entities, ordering, dependency management, splitting of user stories, etc. The thing that makes this course impactful is that it uses one of the most prevalent type of application in the world - an e-commerce application - to develop a product backlog. The numerous examples that you will see come to fruition from scratch will help further drill down the knowledge.

One more thing, The reason Ifelt compelled to create such an offering was that I simply could not find a course anywhere online that demonstrated how to actually create a product backlog. There are lots of courses on agile and user stories, etc. but all of them, without exception, trade in regurgitating academic information. Again, this is where the course differentiates itself by miles in that it teaches by doing.

I do believe that thiscourseisvery likelystill the only course of its kind in terms of its approach and concrete, actionable knowledge that it conveys.
