QPR have NOT approached former Chelsea star about manager’s job

first_img1 Burton Albion insist they have not had an approach from QPR for manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.Hasselbaink has enjoyed an impressive spell in charge at the Pirelli Stadium and is reportedly the Hoops’ top target to succeed Chris Ramsey.But Burton chairman Ben Robinson has dismissed the speculation and claimed the Dutchman is fully focused on leading the League One club.Robinson said: “We have not had an approach from QPR.“The team and the manager have done fantastically well over the last 12 months and that inevitably means that there will be speculation when job vacancies arise.“We have not had an approach from QPR and Jimmy remains focussed on two important League One games coming up against Bury and Wigan.”Hasselbaink guided Burton to the League Two title last season after replacing Gary Rowett.This term, his team have made an impressive start to their League One campaign and are currently just two points off top spot with a game in hand on leaders Gillingham.

The band themselves found this to be an inspiring experience. Despite having international and All-Ireland-champion status, members had, until now, mainly performed for thousands in passing. To experience thousands of spectators focused on you for an entire 15minute performance and embrace their reactions along the way was so exciting for the group.Cliff Mason PhotographyIt was an honour for the band to be embraced as they were at the Belfast International Tattoo.Local supporters and those from the Maghery and Dungloe community travelled to Belfast to also witness the band debut on the magnificent Tattoo stage. Messages of the locals’ pride in the band flooded in over the course of the four days that they were in Belfast.Brian Wilson and Colin Wasson, organisers of the Belfast Tattoo, made the Donegal band feel right at home on the grand Tattoo stage. This is the beginning of a great Tattoo career for the band who now plan to develop their routine for the Tattoo stage.

As a voluntary and non profit group they will have to plan these invites as well as they can so they can undertake fundraising efforts all whilst representing Maghery, Dungloe, Donegal and Ireland as a whole.Information for new recruits and auditions for the academy can be obtained from Annemarie, chairperson, drill and drum major instructor on 0879247837.Cliff Mason PhotographyThey invite young and old who have a passion for music and performance and who would like to get involved to get in contact.

Reaching Out to Developers? Build for the End User

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… alex williams Tags:#cloud#news Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting I asked the team at Atlassian yesterday about their macrovision of the market and how they view the developer world. I found their answer revealing. What they said made me think about the way companies have to build for developers and end users. It’s increasingly almost a task that has to be one and the same.The question came as they explained why Atlassian, which received $60 million in finding last year, bought two plugins from Sysbliss: Bamboo Release Management and JIRA Workflow Designer.Both tools have a core value. They are easy to use and they help get the job done quickly.Jira Workflow Designer plugin is a visual editor similar to Visio for making workflows. With it you can save custom layouts, drag and drop items and remove the steps that have often required repeated tasks in the initial workflow creation. Bamboo Release Management integrates with Jira. It offers:Centralized version management.Filters and masks to grab the right version.Version qualifiers to doc custom builds on different release levels.Configuration tester to see what versions are available based on your configuration.The End User and the DeveloperAtlassian has made its mark by offering developer environments for building software and services. I asked about that in context with their macrovision. Atlassian offers tools for developers but they see themselves focusing in many ways on the end user. Their goal is to offer custom workflow environments for people like myself who want the sophistication of a rich workflow but do not have the skill sets of a developer.To that end, they have launched Atlassian University.That’s a trend you see in the market with Web apps such as Dropbox, which is a service for anyone to use but has serious credibility with the developer geek crowd.The idea being that developers want smooth experiences. And the end user absolutely requires it.That’s better than the alternative. And that’s being classified according to tired metaphors such as application lifecycle management providers. It’s almost as if developers are saying treat us like everyone else. Just allow us to show our individuality and ways to extend tools and service the ways we want.That’s the message we hear from Atlassian as well as across the market with each passing day. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
