Automation with Red Hat Ansible
What is Ansible, how does it work in the most basic form on the command line – and where does Ansible Tower fit it?
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.

This event is part of a series of virtual workshops and webinars to introduce basic concepts and key technologies for enabling Infrastructure as Code capabilities for your business.  Click here for more info on the full Technology Series.

A series of virtual workshops and webinars to introduce basic concepts and key technologies for enabling Infrastructure as Code capabilities for your business. Modern infrastructure development is looking more and more like software development. Concepts like continuous deployment, distributed version control, and build/deployment automation are critical to successful software supply chains and even more critical to modern architecture.

This series of workshops and webinars is intended to provide a jumpstart to technologies and methodologies critical to successfully implementing infrastructure as code strategies. Join us for this Operations and Infrastructure teams focused series on the technology foundations of Infrastructure as Code. Because modern administrators do just as much development as development teams.

DevOps Down and Dirty

Getting down to the nitty gritty to learn the basics.

We’ve opted to step away from theory and the big picture to dive into the nitty-gritty. Stories and experiences from the operators, implementors, and individuals that instituted a change where necessary, but not necessarily wanted. What technologies and teams did they represent or partner with? What challenges did they overcome? And, most importantly, what was the secret to their success?

Join us for a week-long virtual DevOps event offering on-demand presentations each day for you to watch at your leisure over coffee. We’ll wrap up the week with a live session, fireside chat, and Q&A with the speakers on the final day, Thursday, October 29th. Register Now!
