Ansible is a powerful, yet simple configuration management tool. It has learned quite a lot from its predecessors like Puppet or Chef and is in many ways simpler to use.
This hands-on workshop is designed for developers and admins who are looking to understand how they can leverage the powerful features of Ansible in their environment. Students will not only learn to _use_ Ansible but will really understand the concepts and how to apply them. Teams of 2 students will each manage a small group of servers grouped into different environments (test, prod). The bare bones servers (cloud VMs) will be provided. The students just need the latest Ansible installation on their machine.
