Photos from my India Trip – Week 1 – Chennai

Hi Everyone,

As some of you may know, I’m in India for two weeks: July 13-26. I’m here for business and this will take me to two cities in southern India: Chennai and Bengalaru. This is my fourth trip to India, the past couple of trips I’ve gone to Bengalaru and Mumbai. But this is my first visit to Chennai.

I just finished up a successful work week in Chennai. I was teaching a course of mobile app development to a team of developers at Cognizant. A great group of guys and we had so much fun doing a deep dive into everything mobile (iOS, Android, Cordova, Xamarin, mBaaS). Fun time!

This weekend I decided to take a tour of Chennai. There is a lot of history in the city and I just couldn’t let the weekend pass by without visiting some of the great tourist attractions in the city.

Here are a couple of photos that I took during my time here. I leave Chennai on tomorrow (Sunday) and head to Bengalaru to teach another series of training classes.

BTW: If you are in Bengalaru, let me know. I’d love to meet up with you for dinner or drinks. If you’ve watched any of my videos then we are instant friends 🙂

BTW: I fell in love with Chennai. Can’t wait to come back and bring the family!
