What To Expect In Austin

AnsibleFest is the annual user conference for the Ansible community and Red Hat Ansible Automation users. Based on your feedback, we've expanded the conference this year. It's jam-packed with content covering all aspects of IT automation, whether you’re just getting started or already an advanced automation professional. Breakout sessions are split into six tracks of content: Best Practices, Community & Culture, Tech Deep Dives, Business Solutions, Network Automation, Ansible Integrations.

Presentations are delivered by Ansible experts — contributors, partners, engineers and customers covering all sectors. Plus, our Ansible engineers take one-on-one meetings with attendees to answer their specific questions during Ask an Expert sessions.
