Experience automation in action

With six tracks to choose from, automation enthusiasts, collaborators, and experts alike can choose the topics that best fit their interests.

Getting started with automation

Every automation journey starts somewhere. Start yours at AnsibleFest 2022. This track will offer a range of 101 level sessions, designed to help you understand the basics of Ansible®, foundational best practices for automation, and how to take the first steps toward a successful automation strategy.

The Ansible community

The Ansible Community is large, vibrant, and diverse. Discover how you can play a more active role in it. This exciting track will offer multiple avenues of exploration around what it means to be part of the Ansible Community. From finding new ways to contribute to the Ansible project, to exploring non-traditional (non-IT) ways of using Ansible, to dedicated Career and Hallway mini-tracks, these sessions will be about discovery and connection.

Automation adoption

Deciding to automate is one thing. Implementing across an organization is another. This track will offer an exploration of best practices for building an automation mindset, scaling automation operations, and the link between organizational culture and successful automation.

Automation, applied

There are few better ways to learn in IT than directly from organizations who have tackled, or are tackling, the automation challenges you see on the horizon. This track will feature spotlight sessions from Ansible customers, partners, and industry thought leaders who have real world experiences to share across a range of use cases and verticals.

Ansible Automation Platform

If you’re attending AnsibleFest, odds are that you’ve at least heard of Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform. This track will cover a range of topics, from the latest use cases, to product updates and upcoming features, to hands-on workshops. This entire track is designed to help users get the most out of Ansible Automation Platform to create, manage, and scale automation across their organizations.

Advanced Ansible

Calling all Ansible die-hards and super-users. This track is packed with advanced, 301 level content designed to help even the most seasoned Ansible experts push their skills even further.
