SCAVENGE THE SQUARE: HARVARD at The Brattle Theatre

Featuring a 30th Anniversary Screening of THE GOONIES!

Join Cambriville Connects and the Brattle Theatre for a night of exploring the fun businesses of Cambridge’s iconic Harvard Square. Grab your map at the Brattle Theatre and then stroll around the neighborhood looking for treasure at local businesses, and end at the theater for a 30th Anniversary showing of THE GOONIES. Hunt participants will be entered to win prizes. Participants are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Goonies character for a chance to win a grand prize – a one-year Brattle membership.

(1985) dir Richard Donner w/Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman, Kerri Green, Martha Plimpton, Jonathan Ke Quan, John Matuszak, Robert Davi, Joe Pantoliano, Anne Ramsay [114 min; 35mm]


A group of pint-sized misfits known as THE GOONIES go on a quest for ‘One-Eyed’ Willy’s lost pirate treasure in a bid to save their community from destruction to make way for a new golf course. They thought they were prepared for anything, but when they cross paths with the notorious Fratelli Family (headed by the evil Mama Fratelli (Ramsay)) things get really hairy. An unforgettable adventure!

Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) - Boston
Course Description

66% of software features are rarely or never used. Making the right product decisions, building the right features, and incorporating feedback is the difference between building products that satisfy customers and building products that delight and engage them.

As one of the largest and fastest-growing agile frameworks, Scrum is a simple, yet powerful way to manage product requirements, elevate quality, and accelerate project delivery. One of the key roles in Scrum is that of Product Owner, the person tasked with setting and communicating the product vision, the one who ultimately determines what gets built.

The BigVisible Certified Scrum Product Owner course is a 2-day, hands-on workshop, filled with practical advice and time-tested techniques designed to give students the foundation they need to succeed with Scrum. Our Certified Scrum Trainers are coaches first, which means that long after your course is over, we have the experience and expertise to provide ongoing support and assist you in implementing what you've learned.

Our CSPO course offers a detailed examination of the Scrum project lifecycle and the product owner role, going beyond the basic definitions to focus on how to achieve success as a product owner with Scrum. Course delivery is varied for optimal learning, with activities ranging from case study analyses and in-depth lectures, to hands-on exercises and interactive games. Each person will leave this course empowered with practical, applicable advice and skills they can apply to their own projects and teams.Agenda & Learning Objectives

Our CSPO course covers a broad range of topics, including:

  • How Scrum helps organizations cope with change, budget constraints, quality issues, and more
  • The product owner role and how it differs from traditional roles, such as business analyst
  • Ways to manage the product backlog and write effective user stories
  • Pragmatic practices for managing and communicating the scope and vision of a product
  • How to partner effectively with a development team
  • Strategies for delivering faster by taking advantage of the iterative, incremental nature of Scrum

Courses typically run from 8:30am to 5:00pm, though the exact hours may vary. Coffee in the morning, lunch, and an afternoon snack are provided and are included in the course price. These informal breaks are outstanding opportunities to visit and network with your trainer and classmates.Intended Audience

This course is appropriate for stakeholders, business analysts, managers, product owners, and anyone who wants to understand what agile and Scrum are all about from the product-owner perspective. Though no agile experience is required, some experience managing projects is helpful.Course Benefits

Upon completion of the course, students will be eligible for the following benefits:

  • Eligibility for the CSPO
  • Ability to apply for 1 PDU per contact hour with the Project Management Institute
  • Satisfaction of two-thirds of the 21 required training contact hours for the PMI-ACP® (Agile Certified Practitioner) as well as a strong foundation for the associated certifying exam

Anthony M. Amore discusses The Art of the Con: The Most Notorious Fakes, Frauds, and Forgeries in the Art World at The Harvard Book Sotre

Harvard Book Store welcomes ANTHONY M. AMORE, co-author of the bestselling Stealing Rembrandts and head of security at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, for a discussion of his latest book, The Art of the Con: The Most Notorious Fakes, Frauds, and Forgeries in the Art World.

Art scams are today so numerous that the specter of a lawsuit arising from a mistaken attribution has scared a number of experts away from the business of authentication and forgery, and with good reason. Art scams are increasingly convincing and involve incredible sums of money. The cons perpetrated by unscrupulous art dealers and their accomplices are proportionately elaborate.

Anthony M. Amore's The Art of the Con tells the stories of some of history's most notorious yet untold cons. They involve stolen art hidden for decades; elaborate ruses that involve the Nazis and allegedly plundered art; the theft of a conceptual prototype from a well-known artist by his assistant to be used later to create copies; the use of online and television auction sites to scam buyers out of millions; and other confidence scams incredible not only for their boldness but more so because they actually worked. Using interviews and newly released court documents, The Art of the Con will also take the reader into the investigations that led to the capture of the con men, who oftentimes return back to the world of crime. For some, it's an irresistible urge because their innocent dupes all share something in common: they want to believe.

Valley Venture Mentors Monthly Meeting 2015
Startup entrepreneurs often lack a deep network of relationships, severely decreasing their survivability.  Meanwhile, many business executives love to mentor but lack a way of easily and enjoyably finding and helping the right ventures.     A small team of entrepreneurs and business leaders co-founded Valley venture Mentors in 2011 to solve this problem.  The format is simple: put the right people in the same room, give them just enough structure, and then funnel the collisions :).     The program meets monthly so that mentors have a chance to build real relationships and see how the ventures evolve over time.  Mentors give as much, or as little, time to each venture as they feel appropriate with no long-term commitments or expectations.  The program's leadership guides mentors and entrepreneurs that choose to deepen their relationship.   Free beer, wine, and gourmet food is provided to help fuel the evenings' festivities!   Where:  Tower Square, VVM Accelerator Space 1500 Main Street, 1st Floor, Springfield, MA 01115 Parking & Directions   Child Care: VVM provides free child care for people who order "Child Care" tickets.  Please bring whatever entertainment your kids enjoy.  We'll have movies, markers,and paper.  Please order free tickets for each child. Learn More: http://valleyventurementors.org Questions?

We'll all participate in pre-designed activity based on your teaching area (math, physics, life sciences). Based on the units you'd like to teach using data-intensive approaches, we'll organize into groups to design lessons using iSENSE. We'll try out each others' lesson designs. We'll conclude with reflections and planning for how to implement over the upcoming school year. In order to participate in the workshop for free, we ask that you describe three of your favorite lessons, activities, labs, or demonstrations which would benefit from data collaboration and/or visualization. In the registration form, we will ask you to please include a brief description of the learning objective(s) and the data being used. We will use these ideas to help tailor the workshop toward your interests and to group you with other teachers. Please contact Fred Martin (fredm@cs.uml.edu) and Samantha Michalka (samantha@machinescience.org) if you have any questions.

Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) - Boston
Course Description

66% of software features are rarely or never used. Making the right product decisions, building the right features, and incorporating feedback is the difference between building products that satisfy customers and building products that delight and engage them.

As one of the largest and fastest-growing agile frameworks, Scrum is a simple, yet powerful way to manage product requirements, elevate quality, and accelerate project delivery. One of the key roles in Scrum is that of Product Owner, the person tasked with setting and communicating the product vision, the one who ultimately determines what gets built.

The BigVisible Certified Scrum Product Owner course is a 2-day, hands-on workshop, filled with practical advice and time-tested techniques designed to give students the foundation they need to succeed with Scrum. Our Certified Scrum Trainers are coaches first, which means that long after your course is over, we have the experience and expertise to provide ongoing support and assist you in implementing what you've learned.

Our CSPO course offers a detailed examination of the Scrum project lifecycle and the product owner role, going beyond the basic definitions to focus on how to achieve success as a product owner with Scrum. Course delivery is varied for optimal learning, with activities ranging from case study analyses and in-depth lectures, to hands-on exercises and interactive games. Each person will leave this course empowered with practical, applicable advice and skills they can apply to their own projects and teams.Agenda & Learning Objectives

Our CSPO course covers a broad range of topics, including:

  • How Scrum helps organizations cope with change, budget constraints, quality issues, and more
  • The product owner role and how it differs from traditional roles, such as business analyst
  • Ways to manage the product backlog and write effective user stories
  • Pragmatic practices for managing and communicating the scope and vision of a product
  • How to partner effectively with a development team
  • Strategies for delivering faster by taking advantage of the iterative, incremental nature of Scrum

Courses typically run from 8:30am to 5:00pm, though the exact hours may vary. Coffee in the morning, lunch, and an afternoon snack are provided and are included in the course price. These informal breaks are outstanding opportunities to visit and network with your trainer and classmates.Intended Audience

This course is appropriate for stakeholders, business analysts, managers, product owners, and anyone who wants to understand what agile and Scrum are all about from the product-owner perspective. Though no agile experience is required, some experience managing projects is helpful.Course Benefits

Upon completion of the course, students will be eligible for the following benefits:

  • Eligibility for the CSPO
  • Ability to apply for 1 PDU per contact hour with the Project Management Institute
  • Satisfaction of two-thirds of the 21 required training contact hours for the PMI-ACP® (Agile Certified Practitioner) as well as a strong foundation for the associated certifying exam
Why a BigVisible Course?
