Ansible November meetup

After the successful inaugural meetup here is the second!

We are working on the agenda, it will be similar to the inaugural one with 15/20 minutes slots preceded and followed by opportunities to mingle, share a beer and eat pizza with other Ansiblers. Spaces are limited, so please register your interest early to avoid missing out. 


1) It's not just for servers - Chris Bird

• Problems faced in development environments
• Practicality of using Ansible to control development environment (Vagrant, Ansible setup)
• Demo of it working
• Pro's and Con's retrospective after using this approach

2) Role reuse: promising but hard - Martin Maisey

• Why we love Ansible
• Why Galaxy doesn’t always work for us at the moment
• What makes a good role?
• How could we/Ansible Inc make Galaxy and Ansible’s metadata format better?

3) in progress :-)

Do contact us should you wish to share your experience with Ansible, if it's not for this meetup there will be space in the next one ;-)

    Yep, big thanks to the presenters, to Hotels for the fab space (it's nice in their office, isn't it?) and to eSynergy for feeding and watering us all! I got to chat to a few folks afterwards, and it's always a pleasure. Ansible'ers are so nice to chat to, because you're all so cheery :) Next one should be January - then hopefully monthly. AnsibleFest is in London for the first time in Feb, and we're lining up some great speakers. Cheers all!

    Thanks for another super event. Its been my third Ansible meet up this year (inc cfgmgmtcamp) and they have all been very beneficial. Very much looking forward to the next one. I got many Ansible stickers now!

    It was great to have the opportunity to speak at this meet-up (my first as an attendee or speaker, believe it or not). Thanks to Marco for organising, Mudassar/ for sorting the venue, and whoever bought the beer/pizza for doing that. Sorry for anyone who had to stand; I guess turnout was better than expected!

    I really enjoyed talking to a fantastic bunch of enthusiastic people doing some very interesting things - everyone seemed to have a story to tell. If you spoke to me (or wanted to, but didn't get a chance), feel free to drop me a LinkedIn request/email/Twitter DM etc. and let's keep in contact.

    A few people asked me for slides afterwards - they're at
