You want to automate your AWS infrastructure, the provisioning of instances, and your deployments?
Then Ansible is the right tool for you and this workshop gets you up and running in no time.
Three years ago we started using AWS by clicking the infrastructure together. Over the time we built various scripts to support us, but this just worked like duck tape holding a broken system together. So when we had to migrate from Ireland to Frankfurt, we took the chance to start fresh. We looked for a single tool to do everything for us and it turned out that Ansible was the perfect match.
In the workshop we cover the basics of Ansible by setting up a local environment in Vagrant. And we create a similar system on AWS and cover the initial stumbling blocks.
