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.
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.
This training is primarily aimed at admins and DevOps who want to start using Ansible. At the same time,developers who deploy their applications (even into test environments) and want to simplify this process, will also find it useful.
My name is Ondrej, I am a software engineer and DevOps consultant, architect & lecturer. I lead mostly Docker courses and CI; they are both closely interrelated. I have worked for small companies, startups to big corporations. I have four years of experience with training.
I've had a couple of training sessions, but this perfectly tuned Kubernetes training really got me;) If you want to go with the times and you don't know what k8s is, don't hesitate to write to Ondra !!! Thanks again Ondra;) It was great!
The training was very nice, especially tailored to our needs. Ondra was ready and willing to answer all our questions, whether about git, Kubernetes or Docker.
Ondrej trained our team in using Git and using the Docker. The course was excellent. Ondrej'sknowledge of devops is great. I highly recommend his courses. They have pushed us forward to automate daily processes.
