by Gabor completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
It seems like a good introduction to Agile in general and to Scrum in particular. The XP part was not that clear to me. Seemed like "I have to show something else even though I don't really want to" thing. Some of the questions of the quizzes were not explained in the videos. Maybe there was some other material I missed?

I would have preferred to hear more real-world examples not just the theory.
