|[PLUG] Philly Python Users Group Event: Introduction to Ansible|
Working in IT, you're likely doing the same tasks over and over. What if you could solve problems once and then automate your solutions going forward? This is where server and configuration management automation come in. If you're working with any kind of cloud service, hosting your own servers in your data center, virutalizing, or developing with Vagrant, chances are Ansible can help you. Your Python code has to run somewhere reliable, and having a set of manually configured servers isn't going to do your beautiful codebase any favors. Unlike other tools in the field like Puppet or Chef, Ansible doesn't use an agent on the remote host; it only needs SSH.
Come learn about the exciting world of configuration management and Python code deployment. Our speaker will give an introduction to Ansible, a lot of story telling and use cases, and plenty of time for Q & A. Got a challenge or question about how to scale a big data application deployment? Wondering how to make your Django site run on more than one node with runserver and SQLite? Feel free to bring your questions!
