About Waltham
map
Waltham Massachusetts was founded in eastern Massachusetts in 1636 and incorporated into a town in 1738 and then into a city in 1884. The Charles River cuts a path through the southern section of Waltham and has been used throughout its history for transportation and industry. Waltham is probably most historically famous for the Waltham Watch Factory that made its home on the banks of the Charles and was a pioneer company of the industrial revolution.

The Charles River has given way to Route 128, the main economic center of the city and has the second largest office market in the greater Boston area. Waltham has a diverse housing market with multi-family houses near the downtown section and single family neighborhoods along its borders.

Waltham is the home for higher education with two of the most prestigious colleges in the east - Bentley College and Brandeis University. The downtown section of Waltham hosts many diversified restaurants guaranteed to satisfy any craving or palette along with many retail establishments.

With all of these amenities and its convenient location just off Route 128 and its public transportation systems which include the commuter rail - Waltham is an especially pleasant place to live or work.

Agile & Scrum Fundamentals 1-Day Training from FreeStandingAgility.com - May
This one-day class is designed to provide you with a rapid foundation in the values, benefits, and practices of Agile and Scrum. After completing this class, you'll have a solid understanding of what "doing Agile" or "adopting Scrum" really means and be ready to move forward with Scrum in your organization. If you already do Scrum and need to spin up more teams or on-board new employees quickly, this is the class for you. Here's a quick list of the topics the class covers: - Comparing traditional approaches and Agile approaches - Conducting iterative planning and development with Scrum, Kanban, and XP - Understanding the roles, events, artifacts, and rules of Scrum - Creating, ordering, and grooming the product backlog - Writing, slicing, and sizing user stories - Working with a Definition of Ready (DoR) and a Definition of Done (DoD) - Planning and tracking releases and sprints - Visualizing progress with taskboards, burndowns, and burnups - Estimating with teams using planning poker and affinity techniques - Understanding team velocity and role metrics - Conducting effective standups, sprint planning, sprint reviews, and retrospectives Why a one-day class? It's simple. The goal is to impart the essentials of Agile and Scrum to each participant in the shortest amount of time using an active classroom with simulations and interactive team learning exercises. Who should attend? With rich, useful content, a single day commitment, and a low price, the class is great for both individuals and teams. Individuals quickly gain the knowledge they need to broaden their skills and make themselves more marketable. Who can't spare a day for that. As for teams, the class delivers even more value by making it easy to afford sending team members together and compounding the learning they bring back to their companies. Compare that to sending a single person to a two-day class for $1500 and hoping that they'll be able to share what they learned to others. Still need convincing? Read what some students have said. "The class was one of the most engaging and cost-effective classes I've taken in 25+ years of work." - Irwin Schreiman, PerkinElmer "WOW!" - Chuck Miksis, Motorola Mobility/ARRIS "Awesome Class!" - Stanley Ivas "Best in Boston to learn Agile/Scrum." - Kanda Alagappan "I can use these principles & practices to take charge of my day today." - Heather Mardis, Motorola Mobility/ARRIS "Very valuable and enjoyable." - Larry Antonuk, Markem-Imaje "Very informative, engaging, and a definite 'go to' for starting or improving agile in your company." - Abhinay Pujari, GMO "Well done. The experience of the instructors is great." - Mike Dunbar, Conexant "If you are planning to or are employing Agile methodology, this class should be required." - Mark Ayasee, VFA Inc. "Excellent class. Covered the fundamentals in a fun interesting manner." - Josh Feldman "It's as good for beginners as for someone who is already using agile." - Oleg Puzatkin, VFA Inc. "Great crash course in agile methodologies." - Jill Nickerson, AlixPartners "It's a great introductory class for understanding the fundamentals of Scrum." - Chandra Kollipara, BA Insight "Definitely worth every penny + would absolutely recommend!" - Colleen Schwartz, AlixPartners "Agile ASAP is a great one day introduction to Agile and Scrum. The teachers are among the best in the world. I brought my entire team with me, and they left excited and ready to bring it to work the next day. I will send more teams to this class, and I'll bring the teachers into my company for on-site training. Don't miss it!" - Richard Kasperowski, Nokia Class Time: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Class Day Travel Trip: Traffic on I-95/128 is a wildcard and can be "unpleasant" before class time. The best idea is leave early and target getting to classroom between 8:30-8:45. Dress Code: The dress code for the class is casual. Come comfortable and ready to engage in learning. Lunch: Lunch will be provided. Instructors: The course instructors are from FreeStanding Agility, a team of Agile educators, trainers, and coaches with over 12 years of combined experience, coaching and/or training Agile teams in over 100 different organizations. Registration/Cancellation/Refund Policy: If you registered for a class and need to cancel, you may transfer the registration to another person at no cost. Simply reach out to us at Info@FreeStandingAgility.com and let us know who will be attending in your place. If you registered for a class, need to cancel, and cannot transfer the ticket to another person, the following policies will be in effect: 1. If you notify us in advance of 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel, you WILL be eligible for a refund for the full price of the class OR you can ask to be moved to a future class date at no extra cost. Refunds will be processed immediately, but may take 7-10 days to show on your credit card statement depending on your card provider's policy. 2. If you notify us within 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel, you WILL NOT be eligible for a refund of the full price of the class and you will need to pay a $72.40 rescheduling fee to be moved to a future class date. This policy stems from the the fact that the venue for our classes requires us to commit an attendee count 7 days before the class date. They charge us based on that committed number. When attendees that are committed do not attend at the last minute, the venue still charges us per the committed number. We are simply passing this cost on to the attendee should the condition apply. 3. If you notify us within 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel and do not want to reschedule, you do not need to pay the rescheduling fee, but you do forfeit the price of the class.

Learnability
BostonCHI and STC New England host:   Chauncey Wilson, User Experience Architect, Autodesk

Learnability

 May 12, 2015, 6:30PM

Autodesk, 1560 Trapelo Road, Waltham, MA   This is a joint meeting with STC NE.

 


Abstract

Learnability is an important aspect of usability, yet there is little agreement on exactly what learnability is, how to measure it, and the guidelines and principles that design teams should follow to make products and services easy to learn. Usability guru, Jakob Nielsen defined “learnability” as “allowing users to reach a reasonable level of proficiency within a short time,” but this statement requires product teams to further define “users”, “reasonable”, “level of proficiency”, and “short time”. Designers of an ATM, for example, might consider error free withdrawals within a minute during the first use of a new model of ATM a reasonable learnability goal; designers of a complex customer relationship (CRM) system might base learnability goals on performance and error rates on a set of tasks after 2 weeks of training. What types of learnability are important for your product or service? Each type of learnability has a different learning curve, measuring method, and target performance goal.

In this program, Wilson describes various types of learnability, including the following:

· (Literal) first experience with a product

· Memorability (relearning) after a period away from a product

· Expert learning

· Transfer learning when you move from one product to its replacement

· Learning under stress How do you measure learnability? Wilson discusses methods for measuring usability in detail and note some of the problems with those learnability measures.

Examples of learnability metrics that have been used in usability/UX studies include the following:

· Time to complete tasks

· Percentage of users who complete a task successfully

· Percentage of users who complete a task with no assist (going to help or a colleague)

· Change in chunk size over time

· Number of rules required to understand/describe a system

· Learnability surveys

· Percent of available commands or features used

Wilson concludes with a practical discussion of principles, guidelines, and patterns that can be applied to support learnability that focus on both user interface and learning content. He will provide a list of references to learnability and techniques for improving the learnability of products.Bio

Chauncey Wilson is a User Experience Architect at Autodesk, Inc., and Adjunct Lecturer in the Human Factors and Information Design Program at Bentley University. He has presented often at UXPA, STC, CHI, APA, and HFES conferences. Wilson has published several books and chapters on usability engineering, brainstorming, surveys, and inspection methods. He co-authored a chapter (with Dennis Wixon) in the 1997 Handbook of HCI that described how to generate quantitative usability goals (which included learnability along with other usability attributes). Wilson enjoys the role of mentor and always tries to highlight the pros and cons of methods, principles, and processes. He is a member of the Skeptic’s society and enjoys the role of “Chief Skeptic.”.Evening Schedule

SUMMER 2015 Circus Arts 1/2 Day Program for Kids & Teens. Week 2 July 20 - 24.

If you are new to our program, we would like you to contact us by email (melinda@cirquepassion.com) BEFORE you register your child so we can find out a little more about them and make sure that 1) our classes are appropriate/a good fit for them and 2) there is room in the week you are choosing.

Calling all kids aged 7 - teens! Run away with the circus without actually having to leave home!  Moody Street Circus founders Sacha and Melinda Melina Pavlata are hosting / teaching 3 weeks of circus sessions in their Waltham headquarters this year.  Each 1/2 day weekly session costs $350.

Moody Street Circus Class size is always deliberately kept low - to around 10 kids per session, to maximize safety and ensure individual attention for all kids to learn circus tricks safely on all the equipment.  If your child has trouble following directions or listening to teachers in classes, please don't register them for this program!  Safety is paramount in the circus arts and respectfully listening to your teachers is integral to the highest quality experience for all involved.  If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact Melinda Pavlata, Director of Moody Street Circus: 781 893 2491


HALF-DAY CIRCUS ARTS PROGRAM WEEKS

JULY 13 - 17 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m :: $350

JULY 20 - 24 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. :: $350

JULY 27 - 31 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. :: $350

Students in the circus summer program will learn and practice juggling, plate spinning, light assisted tumbling, pyramid formation, rola bola balancing, hula hoop, walking on the rolling globe, low wire tightrope walking, mini trampoline, and regular trampoline.  They will also learn the basics in circus aerial arts including cloud swing, static trapeze, web, lyra (aerial hoop), aerial web, aerial hammock and silks.

  • We start the day with a juggling practice followed by a full-body warm-up with flexibility and strengthening exercises. 
  • We proceed to circus tumbling skills on the tumbling mats, including forward rolls, monkey rolls, wheelbarrows, candlesticks, cartwheels and pyramid formation.
  • Throughout each session we introduce some of Sacha Pavlata's multi-generational circus family clowning skits, including Dead Man, Robin Hood the Coin comedy act, the Newspaper and more. KIds can practice their circus theatrics and comedy.
  • When time permits we will be screening some world-renowned circus acts from our private collection and discussing what makes a great circus performance.
  • We break into small groups for safe, assisted learning on the aerial equipment.  
  • Students learn and practice at their own pace and according to their own level.
  • While taking breaks from aerial work which can fatigue the arms and hands, students practice ground acts of rola bola, rolling globe, low wire, plate spinning, juggling, trampoline.
  • We end the day with skills on the mini-trampoline - straight jumps, tuck jumps, straddle jumps, dive rolls and - if we decide your child is ready - front tucks.
  • We will provide fresh fruit and bagel with cream cheese snacks daily. If your child has any special dietary needs, do let us know and PLEASE PACK HIS OR HER OWN SNACK. Also, let us know if your child has any allergies or other medical issues.

Program days will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m.  Students can be dropped off at 8:45 a.m.  Campers must be picked up and signed for on time at 12:30 by their parents or care-givers.  Parents are allowed to stay and observe the the program and their kids in action at any time - visit on our comfy futons and watch what your kids are learning from the sidelines.

Attire:  Moody Street Circus is a gum-free, street-shoe free zone.  We ask that even parents who are dropping off and picking up their children remove their shoes before coming into the studio space.  Students will work barefoot, but indoor-use only sneakers and/or acrobatic shoes are suggested for work on unicycle and low wire.  Long hair must be worn pulled back in a pony-tail or in braids. No jewelry or zippers on the equipment.  We go upside-down on equipment and always follow the SAFETY FIRST! Rule, so: Leotards and shorts or leggings for girls, shorts and shirts that can be well-tucked in for boys.  Campers should not be worried about tucking in their shirts when they are upside down, it is very distracting and dangerous when you are learning new tricks to be worried about your clothing. IF YOU DO NOT WEAR A LEOTARD YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM.

Waiver forms MUST be completed for each camper or participation in the program will not be allowed.

MOODY STREET CIRCUS COUNSELOR - IN - TRAINING PROGRAM:

Weeks 1, 2 and 3

9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

$500 per week

4 slots available per week.


AVAILABLE ONLY TO OUR CURRENT STUDENTS AGED 13 and UP.  Must have prior permission of program directors. WE HAVE A VERY LIMITED NUMBER OF CIT SLOTS, please apply and register early.  If you are 12 and want to be in the CIT program, you and your parents must talk with Melinda in person. 

Parents of kids who are interested in being a Moody Street Circus Counselor in Training must obtain verbal or written permission of program directors before they can register for the CIT summer program.  They must be current students at Moody Street Circus and work well with others.  They must be able to attend the program all day.  CITs must be proficient at many different circus skills and set good examples to those who are less experienced than they are.  They should be generally self-motivated and excited about the prospect of working to improve their skills; they should understand the ideals of proper form, attention to safety, use of breath, and demonstate careful transitions and exit strategies from tricks.  They must be patient and enjoy helping younger kids. 

 

DUTIES OF CITs:  Moody Street Circus CITs will be working with younger kids in the summer program to demonstrate basic skills (e.g. -  how to make wrist hitches in the aerial fabric, Buddha pose and foot knots from the ground, how to practice walking the wire with proper form, how to safely get on and off of the rola bola, etc.  CITs will not be teaching anyone tricks in the air.  CITs participate in all activities of the morning program - warm up, tumbling, pyramids - and then, with guidance from the directors, help Melinda & Sacha demonstrate skills and assist with the younger campers.  CITs help prepare snack and facilitate snack time discussion with the younger kids. 

 

CITs SHOULD PACK AND BRING THEIR OWN LUNCH.  After the morning activities, we will eat lunch, then return to the studio for afternoon intensive individualized training that includes circus conditioning and perfecting individual, duet and group acts and skills with lots of one-on-one time from Sacha and Melinda.  We will help the CITs set goals, develop their acts, and guide them in their practice.  Pick up for CITs is 3 p.m.

SESSIONS

SESSION 1
Best Value for Energy Upgrades
Speaker: Jason Der Ananian, P.E.  
Owners and designers are tasked with upgrading the energy performance of existing building, but often struggle with understanding what are the best choices with regard to invasiveness, long term performance, payback and other factors.  This presentation examines the impact and effectiveness of a variety of upgrades and modifications to existing buildings.  Common examples will be reviewed for both their potential impact to the existing building fabric and their contribution to overall building energy efficiency.  The speaker will also use case studies and practical examples to show how poorly thought-out improvements, that fail to consider moisture flow changes, can be detrimental to long-term building performance.

After attending this session with Jason, attendees will be able to:

  • List simple interventions to improve the energy performance of an existing building enclosure
  • Identify the impact of air infiltration in whole-building energy simulations and on occupants comfort.
  • Understand the accuracy of whole-building energy modeling in predicting building energy consumption for retrofits.
  • Understand how upgrades can change the hygrothermal performance of the enclosure.

 

SESSION 2
Building Enclosure Fundamentals: The Critical Barriers
Speaker: Vince Cammalleri, AIA
Building enclosures are essentially an assembly of multiple critical barriers that, in combination, govern the building’s ability to control, among other elements, water penetration and condensation.  The most common source of failure in building enclosures is moisture; the consequences range from a visible, isolated water leak to widespread, concealed deterioration, corrosion and mold growth.   This session shares our experience with the moisture-induced degradation and remediation of building enclosures.  We examine the fundamental errors that cause failures, from inception through implementation, in design and construction.  We review design principles that generate effective barriers for combined water, air, vapor and heat flow through the building enclosure, and provide examples of how misunderstanding or misapplication of these principles can lead to costly failures.  We illustrate the potential consequences of inadequate enclosure design and construction through case studies, and provide guidelines for prevention.   

After attending this session with Vince, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the principles of moisture migration and water intrusion through the building enclosure.
  • Understand design principles that generate effective barriers for combined water, air, vapor, and heat flow through the building enclosure.
  • Identify some fundamental errors that cause failures.
  • Understand the mechanisms and consequences of these failures, and how to prevent them.


SESSION 3

In the Footsteps of Vitruvius: Durability Lessons Learned from Historic Construction
Speaker: Matthew Bronski, P.E., Assoc. AIA

Construction that is highly durable over the very long-term (e.g., centuries) is inherently sustainable. Despite major emphasis on sustainability over the past decade, we are in the midst of a widespread crisis of building durability failures. This lecture derives from Bronski’s 2009-10 Rome Prize project, where his hands-on research of buildings in Italy spanning over 2,000 years diagnosed successes and failures in the durability attributable to design and detailing, to derive lessons and principles for designing buildings more durably (and hence more sustainably) today.

 

After attending this session with Matt, attendees will be able to:

  • Analyze how time-proven traditional construction details succeed technically, and are durable.
  • Understand traditional construction principles for managing water on facades and windows, promoting durability.
  • Evaluate and choose natural materials wisely for their long-term durability, and hence their sustainability.
  • Learn to recognize and minimize the inherent vulnerabilities in construction details, promoting performance, long-term durability and sustainability.

 

SESSION 4
Avoiding Problems with Floor Finishes on Concrete Slabs
Speaker: Emily Hopps, P.E. 
This presentation will discuss how moisture in concrete slabs leads to flooring failures and provide recommendations for mitigating the risk of failures. Recent changes in the composition of floor finishes and concrete floor construction practices have significantly increased the number of moisture-related floor finish failures. Repair of floor finish failures are typically very costly, time consuming, and disruptive to building operation. This presentation will help architects, contractors, and building owners understand how moisture and alkalinity in concrete slabs leads to flooring failures and provide both design- and construction-phase recommendations for reducing moisture levels. We will review the sources of moisture in concrete floor assemblies and the current industry tests, and their respective limitations, for determining slab moisture and alkalinity levels. Attendees will learn the best practices for establishing a testing protocol, interpreting test results, and mitigating high moisture levels when they exist. We will provide recommendations for minimizing the chances for flooring failures and review the advantages and disadvantages of different moisture mitigation strategies and floor finish options to arm decision-makers with practical options for each of their flooring projects.

 

After attending this session with Emily, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify industry changes and current practices that may result in elevated concrete moisture levels or vulnerable finish floor installations.
  • Design and construct concrete floor slabs that will reduce the chance for high concrete moisture levels and floor finish failures.
  • Specify and interpret the results of current moisture test methods for concrete, and recognize the limitations of the different test methods.
  • Select and evaluate preventative measures to mitigate high moisture levels.

Intro to Zbrush: Pixologic Zbrush 4R6 (Format: 2 evenings: 4/22 & 4/29)

ZBrush is a revolutionary 3D sculpting and painting application used throughout the film and gaming industry. This is a must have skillset for any artist looking to start a career in the 3D Universe. In this workshop, students will first learn how to use a Wacom tablet, which provides a much higher level of precision, and pressure sensitivity than a mouse. Students will learn to effectively navigate the ZBrush interface and the 3D workspace, to get started creating their own three dimensional works of art. We will then explore the different ways that artists can interact with their model, using brushes and alphas to create the desired forms. Each student will create their own character bust, which will be reviewed at the conclusion of the workshop.

This workshop runs two weeknights, Wednesdays, 4/22 & 4/29, 6:30-9:30pm.

Please note: These classes are offered as workshops and not as occupational training programs.
