09:30AM – 3:00PM

This workshop is intended for people who want to learn the basics of Infrastructure as Code and learn how to leverage Ansible to provide automation across Infrastructure Support and Application Delivery.

In addition, the instructor will provide information on differentiation between the Ansible Community version and the product offering from Red Hat, along with integration with other tools to automate the DevOps Pipeline. 

 Workshop Description

What is Ansible, how does it work in the most basic form on the command line – and where does Ansible Tower expand Ansible’s capabilities.

This workshop teaches the basic bits you need to start using Ansible Automation on your own. In the second half we will focus on Ansible Tower and show where it fits in – and when and why you absolutely need it when you automate more and more.
