Ansible 101

Luke Sneeringer

Audience level:
Systems Administration


Interested in Ansible, or in server orchestration and configuration generally? This tutorial will teach the basics -- and a few of the not-so-basics -- of orchestrating machines with Ansible.


Are you interested in learning how to orchestrate and configure servers? This tutorial will cover **Ansible**, a popular orchestration and configuration management tool written in Python. We'll cover: * Writing Ansible playbooks for tasks such as installing and configuration software, and piecing together an application deployment. * Writing reusable, exportable Ansible _roles_. * Writing inventory and lookup plugins to extend Ansible's core functionality. Finally, we'll conclude by deploying an actual application.
