Drum Corps Europe is working on a new website. Not just the layout is undergoing a transformation, but the 'back end' will also be revised entirely. One of the changes is that the visitors will find lots of information, both about DCE itself and about the European Music Games.
New DCE website in the making
Aug 3, 2012
As the IT specialist within the DCE management, Rob Beeren is responsible for constructing the site. The design is being made by artist and designer Peter Franken. The first designs have now been created, and one thing is clear: it will be a huge step forward.
Twitter and Facebook will (obviously) be integrated into the new site. It will be possible to respond to news articles directly through a Facebook account. But there are many more changes. "The site will provide more detailed information about events, corps and scores," says Beeren. "And additional background information will be made available for news items."
The existing website dates back to 2004 and, according to webmaster Marco Janssen, it requires a substantial change. "Technology is changing fast and you can see that the site needs to be updated. We had been wanting to get more out of the website for a long time. And that's really going to happen now. I'm sure that visitors will appreciate it."
Exactly when the new site will be launched has not yet been determined.
