Never log in to your servers again with Ansible

Nov 9, 2017 · Madison, United States of America

For this meeting, we will be covering Ansible: a powerful tool for automating anything you need to do on a remote server. I will start out the meeting giving a gentle introduction to Ansible for those who haven't used it before, and then Ryan Prior will take over, and talk about security when using Ansible for production.

The simplest way to use Ansible is to write what are called "playbooks", which are collections of commands you want to run on a remote server or servers. Although Ansible itself is written in python, the playbooks are written in YAML, and run using Ansible's command line tools. I'll show some examples to get everyone up to speed and comfortable before Ryan shows how to use Ansible for the big time.

Ryan's been working a lot with Ansible at Conjur. He's coming hot off a talk at DevOpsDays: Madison, and has kindly agreed to tailor some material for our group.
