Agile Chennai 2007 is a two day introductory conference for agile software development and agile project management. The Agile Software Community of India organises at least one such conference every year and this year it will be held at Anna University in Chennai.

The conference will be held on October 4 (thats next month), so if you are in India and are interested in agile software development, you should try and make it for the conference. Apart from the scheduled program (the keynote will be given by Jeff Patton this time), the conference is also a good way to meet practitioners of agile software development in India.

Registration for the conference has opened, so head over to the site and register.
