Oak Bluffs is a Cape Cod town located on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. The Town of Oak Bluffs was founded as Cottage City in 1880. In 1907 the name was changed because of the fast growing population and the resort needed to recognize that is was not a "Cottage City" any more.
Oak Bluffs is home to the Flying Horses Carousel which is the nation's oldest operating carousel. The carousel is one of two known carousels built by Charles W.F. Dare in 1876.
In the center of town there are hundreds of imaginative and colorful gingerbread cottages. They are the most perfectly preserved collection of Carpenter Gothic style architecture in the world!

Li'l BeeDee & the Doo-Rites are a 5-piece combo, presenting old-school rhythm & blues with an infusion of rockabilly, with a mission statement to "do ya right"! The band consists of professional musicians who've recorded on Vanguard, Columbia, Fury, Spin-out, and El Toro Records collectively. This is a solid dance band with a high energy presentation, guaranteed to get your crowd on their feet - great for swing dancers, jive, bop & freestylers alike! Born in North Carolina, BeeDee got her first start in the noise making business singing in the Baptist choir. From the first time she heard her granddaddy play claw hammer banjo and imitate a train whistle on his harmonica, her soul was captured by the raw sounds of hillbilly music. Then something called rockabilly floated past this gal's ears, and she was completely smitten. That raucous rhythm found a home deep in her veins, and soon she was a bonafide junkie. BeeDee got her first guitar at the age of 13 and started in on it, finding chords to back up her own crooning. Later she picked up the string bass and has played both guitar and string bass in several bands, including bluegrass, old-time country western swing, and honky tonk. BeeDee has also freelanced professionally with other musical genres, but rockabilly & honky tonk are the ones that resonate the biggest bang with her. Some of her other musical combos include Girl Howdy, a honky tonk combo fronted by 3 gals, based in the northeast, and Slippery Sneakers, a zydeco, rhythm & blues dance outfit, also based in the northeast. --- Hailing from the hills of West Tatnuck, the Hip Swayers are a quality, good time, get up and dance band that combine tight rhythms, searing solos and soulful harmonies in an eclectic mix of originals and covers, encompassing straight ahead roots rock with a country flavor. "The harmonious duo of David Blodgett and Toni Ostrow are not to be missed! A bit of Hank Williams sensibility, Carter/Cash authenticity, and infectious personality." SF Station - San Francisco's City Guide (April, 2013) The full band, Hip Swayers Deluxe, features Dave Niles on lead guitar and Mark Cherrington on percussion.

Kamelot are a band you can rely on! For several years now, they've fascinated their fans with their own brand of melodic power metal, vocalist Roy Khan's charismatic voice and Thomas Youngblood's powerful and at the same time intricate guitar work. Along with drummer Casey Grillo and bassist Glenn Barry, the band's trademarks are unmistakeable; each of their albums is marked by superior compositions and an impressive technique. At the same time, Kamelot have continued to redefine their sound, year by year, tour by tour, album by album. After a year of songwriting, pre-production, recording, mixing and mastering, Kamelot's next masterwork is finally ready. Their latest offering is called The Black Halo and mixes typical Kamelot characteristics like melody, speedo and classical orchestrations with new ideas and fresh influences. "In addition to the complex subject matter, The Black Halo sounds tougher and darker than our previous releases, without dramatic alterations to our style," comments Roy Khan. "We've put even more emphasis on a dynamic guitar sound, tailoring it to the concise and carefully written songs." States guitarist Thomas Youngblood
As usual, Khan and Youngblood started to work on the material early, allowing enough time for the production team to develop the intricate arrangements in their full splendour. The continuation of their Faustus adaptation about the battle between good and evil that began on the predecessor album, Epica , again combines Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's opus with the band's own experiences and views. The story is as multi-layered as it is deep, and it works on several levels. "This part is clearly more complex than the previous one; it deals extensively with political, cultural and religious events at Goethe's time, and there is no obvious red line through the story. On The Black Halo however there are many cross references relating to our own lives, fragments of private experiences and our political opinions, like of the war in Iraq."
As would appear fitting in view of the ambitious theme, Kamelot were supported by various guest musicians during the recordings of The Black Halo , the most renowned among them Shagrath, vocalist with Dimmu Borgir, and Stratorvarius keyboard magician Jens Johansson. The opener, the gripping mid-tempo number 'March of Mephisto' features a sensational meeting of Kamelot, Shagrath and Johansson. "This song embodies the album's atmosphere," Khan explains. "On the one hand you have Kamelot's typical stylistic means, then Shagrath, the frontman of the world's currently most important black metal band, and an amazing solo by Jens, whose "violininstic" approach represents the devil's instrument." Another impressive track is 'Memento Mori' with around nine minutes playing time, Kamelot's longest number not only on The Black Halo but also in the band's entire history. Khan: "An epic, bombastic track that stands for the end of the concept, but not for the end of the album; a little piece of art in itself." We don't need to mention the fact that next to unusual tracks, there are also typical Kamelot numbers along the lines of 'Soul Society', which feature the musicians from their speedy, powerful and at the same time deeply melodic and melancholy side. "We are always reaching for new sounds and goals with our music, but remaining true to our roots and the "Kamelot Sound" that we have created over the years", states Youngblood.
The Black Halo was produced mainly at the Pathway and Gate studios in Wolfsburg under the direction of Sascha Paeth and Miro.Guest musicians, next to Shagrath and Johansson, are Simone Simons, vocalist with Dutch act Epica, Mari (Masqueraid), and the Kamelot choir consisting of Herbie Langhans (7 th Avenue), Amanda Somerville-Scharf, Miro, Gerit Göbel, Thomas Rettke (Heaven's Gate) and Elisabeth Kjaernes plus additional guests. "I'd like to give a special mention to Cinzia Rizzo, who sings in Italian on the intermezzo 'Un Assassinio Molto Silenzioso', adding an authentic cabaret feeling to that part," says Khan.
The Black Halo deals with Love & Wonder, Life & Death through the eyes of Kamelot.
The band's seventh effort, The Black Halo, was released in 2005. To support the new album the band went on tour through Europe and Japan during the first leg of the Black Halo World Tour 2005, they played headliner shows with Epica and Kotipelto as support. In Japan the support was Silent Force. They also played on the Bang Your Head!!! Festival in Germany and the Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium.
In 2005 they shot their first music videos ever, for the songs The Haunting (Somewhere In Time) and March Of Mephisto from the album The Black Halo. Both videos were shot by acclaimed director Patric Ullaeus. The 5th of October 2005 saw the addition of Oliver Palotai as the fifth official band member, Oliver will handle both keyboards and (additional) guitars.
On the second leg of the Black Halo World Tour they visited North and South America (USA, Canada, Brazil) as well as Europe (The Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and Norway). During this part of the tour the bands forthcoming live DVD will be shot, with the main concert being shot on February 11th, 2006 at Rockefeller Music Hall in Oslo, Norway. The shoot will be handled by Patric Ullaeus and promises to be full of surprises for all the fans. Release date is scheduled for Summer/Fall 2006 via SPV Records.
Kamelot signed a recording contract in 1994, releasing their debut, Eternity , the following August. The press praised the album as one of the most promising first offerings ever. 1996 saw the arrival of Dominion , an album that sounded even more varied and diverse than its predecessor. In spring 1997 Kamelot found Casey Grillo and the former Conception vocalist Khan, who joined the group during the production of Siege Perilous . In autumn of the same year, the new line-up embarked on an extensive European tour and returned to the Gate studios in Wolfsburg twelve months later to work on the album that set a new standard for the band; The Fourth Legacy. In summer 2000, Kamelot's first live album was recorded during the New Allegiance tour, which took them through Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Greece and Spain. Only a few months later, Khan, Youngblood, Grillo and bass player Glen Barry presented their fifth studio cut, Karma , and embarked on a European tour. Epica arrived in 2003, followed by another tour as Headliners in Europe, Japan, Mexico and the US as well many top Festival appearances. The Black Halo adds another exciting and epic chapter to the band's brilliant history.

Kanban for Software Development & IT Operations
Kanban is a powerful framework that enables you to take control of your existing way of working and begin eliminating your biggest headaches. It does this by adding enhanced visualization techniques and other tools to our existing management process that improve shared understandings and expose the systemic forces that influence outcomes.
Though simple to use, lurking beneath Kanban's surface is a wide array of scientifically-based methods and techniques that supercharge its basic capabilities for those who wish to harness more from the framework. Scrumban for Scrum Teams
"75% of organizations using Scrum will not succeed in getting the benefits they hope from it." -- Ken Schwaber (co-creator of Scrum)
Scrum is an incredible success, yet...
Many organizations change Scrum instead of the problem when a need for change is revealed.
Organizations tend to focus on improving the wrong things because systemic issues aren't readily identified.
The challenges Scrum teams face will vary, and their ability to overcome them often have little to do with Scrum itself (or how well / poorly teams practice it).
Boston Limited WIP Society
Scrumban can help. Scrumban is the application of flow-based principles (kanban systems) or the layering of the Kanban Method within a Scrum context.
During this kickstart, we highlight how the Scrumban framework helps teams and organizations avoid becoming part of the "75%."What to Expect
The Kanban / Scrumban frameworks are designed to deliver benefits at any level of adoption, emphasizing improved understanding over immediate change. Moreover, teams and organizations are free to improve over time at a pace best suited to their own needs.
This half-day workshop arms participants with all they need to know in order to begin using Kanban in their environments right away. Here's a quick overview of what you'll come away with:
A Basic Mastery of Core Lean / Kanban Principles & Practices
Orientation to New Metrics and How to Use them to Improve Planning and Drive Improvement
A Preliminary Analysis of Your Organization's / Teams Sources of Demand (work requested) and Dissatisfaction (business outcomes that aren't being met)
The Value Stream Mapping of your Current Work Process
Your Initial Kanban Board Design for Visualizing Work & Measuring Performance (created using ScrumDo.com -- an on-line project management and collaboration tool)
A three-month Gold Level Subscription to ScrumDo.com (a $270 value)
Follow-up Remote Coaching & Mentoring (limited)
This kickstart program is the perfect solution for quickly ramping up new teams or employees for Kanban / Scrumban practices.Both Practical & Fun!
This half-day kick start is highly interactive, with key learnings emphasized through group exercises. Participants also get to experience the framework's simplicity and power for themselves through simulated game play (using the GetScrumban game -- our on-line, educational game that walks users through some typical scenarios and evolutions in thinking).How is This Kick Start Different From Other Training?
The combination of game simulation with contemporaneous coaching / instruction allows participants to gain an intuitive understanding and feel of how the Kanban / Scrumban framework can be adjusted to work within their own environments. Benefit from our instructors' extensive experience helping small teams become masters of their domain, and helping large organizations use Kanban / Scrumban to scale Agile more effectively (10,000+ IT Professionals). Participants will learn about some of the common traps and pitfalls around:
Time-boxed vs. Flow-based projects
Pull principles & the Theory of Constraints
Visualizing workflow effectively (the way we work)
Visualizing policies (how we work)
Managing shifting priorities
Effectively dealing with interrupt work and multi-tasking
Balancing demand and capacity
Managing external dependencies
Instructors / Mentors
This kickstart will be led by the only Lean Kanban University Accredited Trainer in the Boston area -- Ajay Reddy.

Since its founding in 2010, the Lovin' Spoonfuls team has collected more than 1,750,000lbs of fresh, healthy food that would otherwise be thrown away, and distributed it at no cost to local soup kitchens, homeless shelters and crisis centers throughout the city. Last year’s ultimate tailgate party allowed us to put another truck on the road, increasing our ability to pick up and drop off rescued food, and this year aims to do the same!
This year anall-star team of Boston’s premiere chefs will once again join the party by cooking their own creative takes on their favorite tailgate food.

Has technology advanced beyond our ability to control it? Some believe this is a good thing and will lead to a marvelous “Singularity,” a point where self-replicating machinery will largely replace human labor, freeing humans to pursue whatever they want. Others are less sanguine about the impacts of technology, warning that the earth and the human race itself may be headed for disaster. Gantz will lead a discussion on these profound questions, starting with our own experiences with digital technologies and recent research on the human-digital interface.

"Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit is a conference which as its name suggests is a very interesting and a very innovative concept of a conference that is being organized to promote discussions on the topic of digital healthcare. The conference is the first of its kind of meet and hence will be attracting a large multitude if participants from all over the world who will all be sharing their views and opinions on the topic. The Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit will highlight how healthcare IT is having an impact on the ambulatory, diagnostic, pharmacy and in patient settings and a big change is looming in the future of the healthcare industry."
Self-driving vehicles. Drivers on demand. Data-driven infrastructure. Vehicles that respond to passengers and to the environment. A sea change is happening in transportation, and mobility of the (near) future will be radically different than today - greener, more comfortable and more efficient. Innovations are rolling out of laboratories, businesses and city halls on four, two, (or zero) wheels at an accelerating pace, exploring the future of urban mobility.
The spotlight is focused on transportation technology and design - the machines that move people - yet there are a host of unanswered questions as transitions are made. This year, California began issuing drivers licenses to self-driving cars, but insurance companies still can't find who is at fault when something goes wrong. Cities are debating whether ride sharing systems should be banned from their streets, while taxi companies organize strikes around the world to protest citizen-driver services like Lyft and Uber. Policy and innovation must go hand in hand for innovations to take hold.
The Road Ahead is not just about emerging technologies - it will be a forum on all dimensions of future urban mobility, bringing leading theorists, dreamers, and practitioners into conversation and debate.
