Team Ramp Up

The Team Ramp Up Program is an innovative and ambitious program designed for the setup of outstanding professionals teams in OutSystems Platform, composed by a Technical Lead and Developers, 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 plus the most important advanced topics to an OutSystems technical lead. It has an updated curriculum that promotes, on the one hand, a transversal and comprehensive understanding of how to design and 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 2 mandatory modules to the entire team and more 3 to the Technical Lead.

With the OutSystems Team Ramp Up program, our customer will speed up the ramp up of a full team who will master OutSystems Core features plus the most important advanced topics to ramp up a Technical Lead and start a project. During Post Training Growth, the technical lead will be supported by our trainer.

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.

The OutSystems Team Ramp Up program is designed for all teams, however it is particularly suited for teams composed by web developers and technical lead with one year or more of experience.
Team size should be not higher than 8 members.

The OutSystems Team Ramp Up program has two assessments to ensure the OutSystems Associate Developer Certification Success (Exam Included per member, max 8 team members).
A final score and an individual report will be delivered in the end of the program.

There are no prerequisites to the OutSystems Team Ramp Up program, but it is determinant programming experience in different technologies like JAVA or .NET and database/SQL knowledge like SQL Server or Oracle and one member with experience has technical lead.

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 Team members. In the end of the module a technical assessment is performed.

OutSystems Development Consolidation

The OutSystems Development Consolidation module follows a hands-on approach simulating a two-week project implementation, complemented with Master Classes.
The project follows an Agile approach, with daily SCRUM meetings and weekly demos. The requirements are carefully tailored so Team members 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, Team members will be working in small teams.
The Master Classes have the goal of teaching other competences which are not covered in the initial module, like Architecture, Best Practices, Silk UI, Integrations and Usability.


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

Master Class – Usability:
● What’s Usability
● Usability Rules
● Ux Checklist.

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.

Post Training Growth (Optional)

After the training period, technical lead starts to work in a real project. To assure optimal results for the team, the technical lead will be supported by an ITUp Trainer, during a period between 0 and 3 months. During this period periodic clinics will be scheduled to assure good architecture and implementation decisions.


During this period technical lead will be supported by ITUp trainers in the following activities:
● Periodic Clinics (Technical Leads only):
○ Periodic clinics will be scheduled to support the technical lead in the project relevant events (1 day / week):
– Architecture Design
– Demos
– Deployments
● Technical Support (Technical Leads and Developers):
