This page offers an agenda for the 3 day Bazaar development event in Edinburgh 1-3 August 2012.

Location: EH9 1PR

Over the course of the days the aim is to test, document and better represent our selves in the bazaar store where things are already a little messy (slap wrists people). Through testing of packages we need to improve descriptions, icons and compliment the packages with screen shots to help our users.
