• Python User Group of Central Arkansas Monthly Meeting

    Arkansas Innovation Hub

    Introduction to Ansible Please bring a laptop for this hands-on introduction to Ansible. In the course of this meetup you will each get to use Ansible to deploy Python code to a cluster of servers. We will use both playbooks (YAML files) and ad-hoc commands to accomplish this and other interesting things, like: View recent logs from each server Restart each server Install a cron job on each server Install python modules on each server Ansible claims "Simple, agentless IT automation that anyone can use". I have used it on production gigs to deploy software on and generally troubleshoot a gaggle of raspberry pis. To me it's considerably simpler than either Puppet or Chef, and it has support for all the things I've needed: Install via apt, install via npm, copy files, create symlinks, read logs, restart servers, restart processes, set up cron jobs, etc. For more info see the Ansible Docs: https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/index.html Come join us for pizza and beer at 6:30, with the presentation starting at 7:00.

    Donaghey Student Center

    PyArkansas is a developer-focused Python conference with talk topics for both beginner and advanced python developers. The majority of our talks will be Python-focused, but in addition to the Python-related topics, we also look for and encourage Python-adjacent and “professional skills” talks to provide a more complete experience.
