Matt Makai will present on fully automating Django web application deployments with Ansible (and a little bit of Fabric for ad hoc tasks). The talk will dive into Ansible's Playbooks and show how to configure servers and deploy code using tasks, handlers, and templates.

After this talk you'll understand how to use Ansible to go from bare Linux installations to fully configured and secured Django application and database servers.
