AnsibleFest is back in San Francisco on Thursday, July 28, 2016.
AnsibleFest is a day-long conference bringing together hundreds of Ansible users, developers and industry partners to share best-practices, case studies and Ansible news.
AnsibleFest is for anyone who is passionate (or becoming passionate) about Ansible. Attendees include DevOps engineers, operations engineers, open source fans, systems engineers, system administrators, operations staff, release engineers, DBAs, network engineers and security professionals.
THE ANSIBLE NETWORK HUB
We've made major networking announcements at our last two AnsibleFest events, and this year we're taking it one step further. For the first time ever AnsibleFest will include an exclusive space, The Ansible Networking Hub, for everyone interested in network automation to gather and learn.
Join us Thursday, July 28 in San Francisco. Buy your tickets here.

Creating a Netflix Zuul Service Stack in AWS Using Ansible
Capital One has embraced the Netflix Zuul edge-and-microservice architecture as middleware for its Mobile suite of products. The Capital One team need the ability to create complex, multi-tiered service stacks in AWS. They also have to be resilient and independent of each other. With Ansible, they can do this in minutes.
Hear from Ansible's own Chris Houseknecht and Joshua "JAG" Ginsberg about Ansible Container and see it in action.
Security is hard. We know what needs to be done, but configuring systems and applications, especially thousands of them, to make life more difficult for attackers is daunting. Learn from Sam Doran on how to use the agentless, push-based power of Ansible to apply and enforce security standards that adapt to meet internal and external security guidelines.
Modern data products use a mix of distributed compute paradigms. Tools like Kafka, Storm, Spark, and YARN allow users to build data products tuned for a particular problem. Increasingly, we are deploying these systems to cloud environments. Mapping hosts to services presents deployment challenges. Learn how Stackspace used Ansible to develop a custom, open source module for Ambari to significantly reduce the playbook logic and template files in their codebase to better work around a challenge installing and configuring Hadoop clusters.
In this talk Mik Kocikowski will describe the AWS provisioning and configuration for a Kafka cluster in regards to HIPAA compliances. Covering the "division of labor" between Ansible and Docker, he will touch on Ansible's AWS modules for instance provisioning and network configuration, Ansible's role in setting up logging and monitoring of Docker containers (spoiler: journald), and how Ansible can manage sensitive configuration items (x509 keys) and securely pass it to Docker containers.
Learn how to architect, test, maintain, and contribute dozens of roles for your Ansible-powered infrastructure. Jeff will walk you through how he builds roles for flexible but simple infrastructure playbooks used by thousands of developers and sysadmins.

AnsibleFest San Francisco 2016 will include our first-ever Networking Hub, an exclusive space for everyone interested in network automation.
The Networking Hub will feature a series of hands-on demo stations where attendees can run live demos. Emphasis will be on networking use cases, such as automating the deployment of Clos-based networks and ensuring configuration standards compliance.
This demo space has been created to specifically cater to:
