Ansible Training

What is Ansible?

Ansible is a tool for mass configuration and deployment management. You declare the desired state of the server and services and Ansible will do the execution. You don't have to worry about the state the current server or applications are in now; Ansible turns it into desired state. The entire configuration is versioned using Git, and you will never lose view of where everything is being deployed or miss any critical steps during the process. Ansible will help you with application deployment and quicker and safer server administration.

Course Description

The training is ran as a two-day hands-on workshop, where you can try what you learn in practice. We will install Ansible together and describe how it works and introduce the basic concepts. We will see how to configure a server (tester on DigitalOcean) and deploy an application from the beginning to the end. Starting with the installation of system packages, application download from Git, creation of templates for configuration scripts, and secrets setup (e.g., passwords). After this course, you will be able to use Ansible on a daily basis and simplify deployment and configuration routines.
