Ansible delivers simple IT automation that ends repetitive tasks and frees up DevOps teams for more strategic work. More information about Ansible can be found on https://www.ansible.com. Ansible is included with a lot of distributions like Fedora and Ubuntu.
Doug Toppin will be talking about AWS CloudFormation as an intro and how it can be used to perform various resource actions and the benefits of using it in general.

John Kennedy will be presenting Intro to AWS Commandline Interface (CLI).
Like last month's meeting, this will be presented for you to follow along so please have an AWS account to use along with a running RDS and EC2 instance and all that goes with it. It is best that these instances are disposable as part of the presentation will go over terminating instances. John suggests creating a free tier account for the meeting. He will avoid services that will incur charges to new free tier accounts but I cannot guarantee this for free tier accounts being used. He will also try to arrive by 9:15am if you need help creating a free tier account.
Some topics that will be covered include things like creating keys, listing instances, creating instances, terminating instances, managing S3 buckets and data, formatting output, and keeping your CLI secure.
Please, please, please - If you RSVP to say you are attending, please do. If your plans change, please update your RSVP. We have a limited number of seats and can't go over 50 attendees. An unfulfilled Yes is a seat that someone else could have taken. Thanks.
John Kennedy will present an intro to AWS including what is included in the AWS "Free Tier" - For new AWS accounts Amazon will give free services for a year.
