Core Ramp Up

The Core Ramp Up Program is an innovative and ambitious program designed for the setup and qualification of outstanding professionals teams in OutSystems Platform, providing them with the skills needed to design, develop and test web and mobile applications using the OutSystems Platform, promoting coordination and teamwork.
It is a very thorough and practical training of the OutSystems Core functionalities. It has an updated curriculum that promotes, on the one hand, a transversal and comprehensive understanding of how to to develop with the OutSystems Platform, but also enhances the expertise in the various areas of intervention, through challenges and related workshops.
The program is split in three modules, OutSystems Development Foundations and OutSystems Development Consolidation and Post Training Support (optional). It can be delivered per seat or dedicated class.

With the OutSystems Core Ramp Up program, team members will master OutSystems Core features and will be ready to enter in a simple project. During Post Training Support, team developers will have an extra support (0 up to 8 weeks) while working in a real project.

The training methodology we follow is aimed at developing skills through their practical application, based on four vectors of learning: practical, theoretical, technical and technological by focusing on interdisciplinary approach of the various aspects of OutSystems Programming and Soft Skills.

The OutSystems Core Ramp Up program is designed for all developers or teams, however it is particularly suited for teams composed by web developers with one year or more of experience.
In the specific case of a dedicated training, the team size should be not higher than 8 developers.

The OutSystems Core Ramp Up program has two assessments to ensure the OutSystems Associate Developer Certification Success (Exam Included).
A final score and an individual report will be delivered in the end of the program.

There are no prerequisites to the OutSystems Core Ramp Up program, but it is determinant to have programming experience in different technologies like JAVA or .NET and database/SQL knowledge like SQL Server or Oracle.

OutSystems Development Foundations

The OutSystems Development Foundation module is a more theoretical one where OutSystems Development Core features will be teached using the OutSystems public materials (videos and exercises). A full time trainer will be on site to help and support the trainees. In the end of the module a technical assessment is performed.

OutSystems Development:

● Data modeling (Entities, attributes, data-types and default values, Calculated attributes, Bootstrapping from Excel, Relationships and the delete rule, Lookup tables, Aggregate data, SQL queries)
● Forms & Validation (Form’s implicit variable and field variables, Input fields, Checkboxes & radio buttons, Combo boxes and source entities, Preparation & Screen Actions, Server-side validations, Client-side validations, Custom server-side validations)
● Application Logic (User Actions & Functions, Entity Actions, Input & Output, Parameters, Collection iteration)
● Customize the Look (Layouts & the Grid, Themes, built-in styles, Style redefinition & CSS hierarchy)
● Page Elements (Web blocks, Web block preparation, Web block styles)
● Asynchronous requests (Ajax submit, Refreshing page elements, Refreshing data, Updating displayed lists, Events)
● UI Patterns (Feedback messages, Pagination, Filters and Sorting of tables, Pop-ups, Charts)
● Security (Users, Roles & Groups, User Management, Restrict access to pages, Custom security checks)
Soft Skills:
● Communication & Customer Orientation

– Exam (requires a score of 70 percent or higher)
– Attitude during training
Understanding of OutSystems Core features (Associate Developer Certification ready)

OutSystems Development Consolidation

The OutSystems Development Consolidation module follows a hands-on approach simulating a two-week project implementation, complemented with Master Classes and daily short exercises on common development patterns.
The project follows an Agile approach, with daily SCRUM meetings and weekly demos. The requirements are carefully tailored so trainees practice the knowledge obtained in the first week and master the OutSystems Core features and common patterns. It is also designed to have some user stories geared towards a Mobile experience and others towards the Desktop. During this period, trainees will be working individually.
The Master Classes focus on complementing competencies covered in the previous module, like Best Practices or Usability.

Master Classes – OutSystems Development:
● Architecture Basics;
● Development + Performance Best Practices;
● The Silk UI Basics;
● Asynchronous processing;
● Extensions & Integration;
● Multi-language.

Master Classes – Usability

Tutorial Project: Implementation of a two-weeks simple project, with the goal of consolidating the OutSystems
Platform Core features and patterns. The Agile methodology will be followed.

– Exam (requires a score of 70 percent or higher)
– Hands on challenge
– Attitude during training
Mastery of OutSystems Core features. Ready to enter in a simple project.

Post Training Support (Optional)

After the training period, team members start to work in a real project. To assure the optimal results of the team, ITUp trainer will optionally continue supporting team members, during a variable period from 0 up to 8 weeks.
During this period, team developers will be supported by ITUp coaches in technical topics.

During this period Team Members will be supported by ITUp coaches in the following activities:
● Technical Support:
○ Unlimited OutSystems development question answer by ITUp coaches (via chat or email)
● Weekly checkpoints
○ ITUp trainer will present the evolution status of the team, the weak spots that need to be addressed, either by ITUp trainer or by other initiatives.

– Weekly checkpoints about team evolution
Technically autonomy of Team members.
