I am currently in Chicago visiting Hostingcon. Chicago is an incredible city, it’s clean, the architecture is beautiful, the restaurants we’ve been to for diner (Shula’s and Funton on the River if I am not mistaken) were amazing, the river that crosses the city is a charm and it’s less than 2 hours from Montreal by plane. If you’ve never been to Chicago, you must add it to your future trip plans. A single walk in the city is worth the trip. As for Hostingcon, it’s not what it was in Las Vegas, but still it is the place to be if you are in the Web Hosting business.
