Re: [PLUG] If you decided to use ansible you obviously made a good choice

I'm a big fan of ansible, and would certainly attend.  I don't yet use
it as much as I'd like, but have plans for adopting it.

I'd certainly attend.  In particular I'm interested in how it can be
done securely.  The biggest criticisms I've heard on ansible focus
on the fact that it doesn't have an agent and pretty much anything
can be done to any accessible system when compromised.

Imagine doing that as often as you like, with something that was as easy as having Python, some text files and an SSH key.  Minimum overhead and maximum utility.  This provides you with automatic installations, disaster recovery, checks for known-good state, and documentation.  It's no joke that Ansible code is so easy to read it is like documentation.  All of my systems are defined by code in a git repo.  It's a beautiful thing.
