Last week, I spent 4 days in Lisle, IL teaching a condensed version of my hands on 5 day microservices class. You are probably wondering where and what is Lisle, IL? That was my reaction when the client told me the training location. Lisle is a village west of Chicago with a surprisingly large number of corporate offices.
As you would imagine, the days were teaching and most of the evenings were spent working as well. However, I was able to find time to have some unexpectedly good food. Twice, I had great dinners in the Hilton Hotel’s restaurant. Another night I had some excellent Korean BBQ pork and sushi at Tanaka Sushi. On the last night I had some delicious German food – Liver Dumpling Soup and Schnitzel at the Bavarian Lodge:
And, on the way home I had my usual Cochinita Pibil Torta with Habanero Salsa at Rick Bayless’s Tortas Frontera restaurant next to gate B11.
Overall, it was a good trip. The class went well: microservices were developed and deployed on Docker. And, I ate some great food.
