  • Ansible ( is a tool for doing provisioning and deployment in a declarative manner using simple YAML files. You can think of it as an alternative to shell scripts for deployment or as a lighter-weight Puppet or Chef.

    Ansible can be useful in almost environment for pretty much any technology stack. I will focus on configuring Linux servers and deploying apps of all types (Node, Python, Java, PHP), including some discussion of handling things like reverse proxy configurations.

    If part of your job involves configuring servers or deploying apps to those servers, you will probably find something to like in Ansible.

    How would everyone feel about the week of May 12? Not sure what day of the week people prefer, maybe mid-week? Wednesday? So that would be May 14?

    We can host at the WebFilings office. I'll be out of town April 15-23rd but any time after that would be great, I think

    If nobody is heading home for spring break, how about Friday March 28 at the ZooTown? ZooTown seems to have plenty of room. The only downside is they're not really a good place to get food.

    Anybody have a suggestion for when and where we should do this? Also, if anyone has any specific use cases they'd like to hear about I can come up with some cool examples to please the crowd :-)

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
