Learn how to automate your infrastructure with Ansible and Red Hat Ansible Tower at our half-day, hands-on Ansible 101 technical workshop specifically focused on the unique opportunities and challenges for today’s academic organizations. 

At this session, you’ll go from writing your first Ansible infrastructure code playbook to walking through installation and configuration of the Ansible Automation Platform (aka Ansible Tower). 

By the end of the workshop, you’ll have acquired enough new knowledge and experience to immediately start going faster and getting more done in your own organization’s infrastructure and development environments using Ansible: one of the fastest growing and already most popular infrastructure automation solutions, running on over 4 million nodes, with 500,000 downloads per month, and 1,000+ Ansible Automation customers globally, a top 10 GitHub project, and currently the #1 configuration tool being used today according to the 2019 RightScale State of the Cloud Report.

Who Should Attend?

We find it somewhat helpful to introduce many of the “big picture” concepts of infrastructure automation in the context of technical and business problem-solving within a specific industry or vertical. For this Ansible 101 workshop, technologists and technology leaders in the public sector will see infrastructure automation design patterns and implementations in the context of the unique opportunities and challenges for today’s colleges and universities. 

Those outside of academia will also find highly relevant and generalized coverage of the above Ansible automation topics, and are also very welcome to attend.
