I have created this course with a focus on teaching skills from scratch, I try and explain each concept and keyword that is used during the course so that it is easier for you to learn these concepts and implement DevOps and Automation in real world. Here are some student testimonials
What is Ansible?
Ansible is a radically simple IT automation engine that automates cloud provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, intra service orchestration, and many other IT needs.
Designed for multi tier deployments since day one, Ansible models your IT infrastructure by describing how all of your systems inter relate, rather than just managing one system at a time.
It uses no agents and no additional custom security infrastructure, so it is easy to deploy: and most importantly, it uses a very simple language (YAML, in the form of Ansible Playbooks) that allow you to describe your automation jobs in a way that approaches plain English.
