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 - June
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.

Don't miss out! Leading THE Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe Agilist Certification) - Waltham MA
This is one train you really want to board - the Scaled Agile release train... =========================================================== WHO -  you and anyone who wants to learn how to deliver value from Agile teams working together WHY - world of product delivery is changing and we need to adapt WHAT - proven, experience based, method for product delivery of Scaled Agile HOW - upbeat, workshop, hands on delivery led by Michael - renowned  keynote presenter and facilitator WHEN - See above ============================================================   This two-day SAFe certification course will show you how to successfully scale Agile principals across your organization by utilizing Lean thinking practices and Product Development Flow techniques.   Scale Agile Across Multiple Teams or the Enterprise For years, Agile teams have been able to develop higher-quality products at a faster rate by utilizing techniques that help them respond to change. This works great in smaller organizations where individual teams can focus on individual pieces of the product, but it can be hard to scale these benefits across a portfolio of products because different teams are focused solely on their own goals. This misalignment of team, program and portfolio is often the obstacle that keeps organizations from fully harnessing the power of Agile. Defining an overall organizational portfolio vision and aligning each team's goals can help you further enhance the value of Agile practices. Through Lean Product Development and Flow, this SAFe certification course will show you how to create longer programs, the Agile Release Trains, where groups of Agile teams work together to optimize quality and velocity to deliver even greater value for their stakeholders.   What is the Scaled Agile Framework? The Scaled Agile Framework (or SAFe) is a guide to aligning Agile development throughout an organization. Most organizations focus their Agile development efforts at the team level, first starting with a pilot team and later transitioning individual teams one at a time. Unfortunately, this method fails to fully integrate each team's efforts with the larger stakeholder need. The Scaled Agile Framework gives you proven techniques to align these teams to work at the larger program level, and ultimately how to align multiple programs into a portfolio that maximizes shareholder value.   In this SAFe Certification Course You will learn: How to lead an enterprise Agile transformation; To apply Lean thinking techniques at the Team, Program and Portfolio levels; To apply Lean, Agile and Product Development Flow principles to improve productivity, employee engagement, time to market and quality; How to infuse Agile into your entire organization – not just your IT department; How to create Agile Release Trains that align the efforts of Agile and non-Agile teams to create greater stakeholder value; To encourage collaboration across all the layers of your organization to enable teams to deliver complex cross-functional features in 10-12 week increment; To improve the communication and focus of your organization’s Agile implementation;   Become a Certified Scaled Agile Framework Agilist The Leading Scaled Agile Framework course is your first step towards earning your Scaled Agile Framework Agilist (SA) certification. Other pre-requisites include more than five years of experience in product development, testing, business analysis, product or project management as well as experience in Scrum.   Upon taking the two-day Scaled Agile Framework Course, you are eligible to complete the SAFe certification exam to earn your SAFe Agilist (SA) certification. The cost of the exam is included in your course tuition. SAFe certification exam questions center around: Lean Thinking Agile Development principles SAFe ScrumXP Agile Release Trains Agile Portfolio Management Agile Architecture Scaling Leadership   As more and more organizations look to scale Agile, be one of the select group of professionals who have a SAFe certification to back-up their hands-on experience. About your facilitator Michael Nir - President of Sapir Consulting US LLC - PMP, Scaled Agile Consultant - has been helping organizations overcome business challenges and achieve their potential for over 16 years. He is passionate about Gestalt theory and practice, which complements his civil and industrial engineering background (M.Sc. and B.Sc.) and contributes to his understanding of individual and team dynamics in business.

Eat to Thrive FREE Potluck featuring Alka Nathani
Eat to Thrive FREE Potluck featuring Alka Nathani, Vegan, and whole food plant based educator.speaking 3 – 4:30  Balancing Your Hormones: The Nature’s Way followed by potluck When:  June 12th 2016 3pm – 6 pm Where:   126 Myrtle Street, Waltham, MA 02453, home of Betsy Bragg A holistic approach is the best way to correct hormonal imbalances in both women and men. Treating hormonal imbalances with pharmaceuticals often aggressively corrects one imbalance while creating complications in other parts of the endocrine system. Essential oils are the best solution for the holistic treatment of imbalances. According to a report by Maria Graçia Miguel, faculty member at Portugal’s University of Algarve, essential oils have powerful anti-oxidant qualities that fight toxicity. “Essential oils are perfect, whether it’s for a situational or chronic issue. So much of what we are taking internally and inhaling are leading to what I refer to as estrogen pollution in our bodies. If we can embrace more natural, non-toxic, synthetic-free remedies, we lower our toxic threshold and the resulting hormonal imbalances that occur from breaching that threshold”. — Marie Delcioppo, health coach and New York Times featured Raw Foods Chef. Bring vegan dish for 8 ready to serve with recipe. RSVP to Betsy@optimumhealthsolution.org.  If unable to bring a dish, notify Betsy by Friday, June 10 and bring $10; Betsy will prepare a dish for you.

Exploiting Genomic Instability in Cancer: DNA Damage and Immune Oncology
New England Structural Biology Association is very excited to announce our first meeting for this year entitled:   Exploiting Genomic Instability in Cancer: DNA Damage and Immune Oncology   Immunotherapies, including checkpoint inhibitors and adoptive transfer therapies, are revolutionizing cancer treatment. The generation of specific neoantigens arising as a result of high mutational rates seems to drive the efficacy of immunotherapies, enhancing T cell reactivity against tumor cells. This is leading to increasing evidence suggesting a positive correlation between mutational burden and clinical outcome of immunotherapies. During this meeting we will investigate the implications of genomic instability as a driver of the efficacy of immunotherapies, covering important aspects such as the exploration of genomic instability to enhance the clinical activity of immunotherapies.      Our organizers have put together an exceptional group of speakers and registration is now open.   Our organizers are:           * Vanessa Almendro – Vertex Pharmaceuticals (Vanessa_Almendro@vrtx.com)           * Boris Engels – Novartis Institutes of Biomedical Research (boris.engels@novartis.com)             The fee for this one-day event will be $150 and includes breakfast, lunch and a mixer session.   For sponsorship opportunities, please visit: http://www.nesba.net/sponsorships.html     Hope to see everyone in June!
