ORGANIZE AN ANSIBLE MEETUP

A fan of Ansible? Want to spread the word? Become a co-organizer of an Ansible meetup! 

There are Ansible meetup groups all over the world, with more forming all the time. If there isn't a meetup in your area, we encourage you to start your own. We are committed to the success of these groups, and will do everything in our power to make your Ansible meetup a successful one.

Organizing an Ansible Meetup: The Playbook

STEP 1: Check the list of current Ansible meetups. If there's already a meet-up in your area, join it and help to spread the word.

STEP 2: No Ansible meetup in your area? Send us an email introducing yourself. Be sure to include a link to your profile at meetup.com.

STEP 3: We want to be sure that meetup organizers are committed to building a strong local community of Ansible users. After a brief discussion, we will create the Ansible meetup group in your area, appoint you as a co-organizer, and announce your new group to the world. We will also ship you an Ansible meetup kit with everything you will need to get started.

STEP 4: Secure a date and location for your first meetup! We will help you by spreading the word on social media, reaching out to potential speakers and sponsors in your area, and suggesting new and interesting Ansible content on a regular basis.

Supporting Your Local Ansible Meetup

Already an Ansible meetup group in your area? There are a number of ways you can help:

If you are an experienced user, consider giving a talk.
Sharing 
expertise is what makes meetups so valuable. Even if you're never given a presentation before, there are dozens of Ansible presentations in the wild, given by other Ansible users, that can serve as models for your own presentation.

If you are an enthusiast, participate actively in your local meetup.  
Ask good questions. Help spread the word. Share pictures. 
Tweet about what you're learning, or write a blog post.

If you are a business, consider hosting or sponsoring.
Meetups 
don't happen without places to have them, and everyone appreciates food at a meetup. It's also a good way to get your company's name out there as an innovative workplace that encourages and supports open source development. If you'd like to host, send us an email and we will put you in touch with Ansible enthusiasts in your area.
