Hands-on Ansible workshop
Speaker: Dag Wieers & Jeroen Hoekx
Ansible is a flexible framework for configuring and managing systems. It combines multi-node software deployment, ad-hoc task execution, and configuration management. It manages nodes over SSH and only requires Python to be installed.
That's Wikipedia's boring description, if you ask us Ansible is the next best thing in automation and if you don't believe us, come to this workshop and find out !
This workshop is an introduction to Ansible. Step-by-step we will automate the setup of a small PaaS environment to deploy a web application to a web server and database backend using nothing more than 'git push'. During this workshop attendants learn the basic concepts of Ansible, its best practices and understand what is going on under the hood.
Your life will never be the same again.
