Ansible describes itself as a tool to do IT automation. What is really does is take instructions written in yaml, ssh into remote servers and executes them. Using variables, roles, templates and facts you can organize these yaml files in a way that they describe your entire IT setup. Much like chef or puppet you’ll be able to setup, configure and update remote servers from one central node without the need to manually run commands on them.
This workshop will cover the basics. We’ll look into the difference between Ansible and other tools like puppet and chef. Of course we’ll write some simple playbooks and look at real life examples.
Your trainer will be: Sebastian Göttschkes
Please note that in this workshop, Sebastian will show you how Ansible works on his laptop. You don’t need to bring your laptop.
If you wanna try out the content of this workshop on your own, you’ll need vagrant, virtualbox and ansible installed. You can find the content of this workshop at https://github.com/Sgoettschkes/workshopAnsible
