As a developer, have you ever made a change that takes down an entire Kubernetes production cluster, requiring you to rebuild all YAML and automation scripts to get production back up? Have you ever wanted to create reproducible, self-contained environments that can be run locally or in production? Welcome to the new AnsibleFest Developer Channel! Here you can learn how Ansible is critical to the journey of the developer as an open-source software configuration management, provisioning and application-deployment tool that enables infrastructure as code.
Ansible Developer Channel
Many themes will be presented in the Ansible Developer Channel, including Kubernetes operations, Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform use cases, as well as execution speed and development efficiency considerations. You can learn how Ansible can streamline Kubernetes Day 2 Operations, where monitoring, maintenance and troubleshooting come into play and the application moves from a development project to an actual strategic advantage for your business. You will also learn how Ansible execution environments solve problems for developers using Ansible Automation Platform and how to create self-contained environments that can be run locally or in production Red Hat Ansible Tower deployments. In addition, you can learn how to optimize execution speed and development efficiency with three types of Operator SDKs, including Go, Helm and Ansible. These topics and many more will be presented in a compelling Ansible Developer Channel.
Building Out Your Expertise as a Developer
The Ansible Developer Channel provides a diverse set of topics to build your expertise. You will learn how CI workflows using GitHub Actions can manage numerous Ansible-based projects. You can also learn to implement effective GitOps workflows using Git version control as your system’s “source of truth”. For scenarios where execution speed is a major consideration, you will learn how caching and reusing Python resources at the host level can achieve this goal. We welcome you to join us for a developer-oriented set of sessions in the Ansible Developer Channel during the several listed below:
- Simplifying Kubernetes with Ansible
- Creating and Using Ansible Execution Environment
- Fast vs. Easy: Operators by the Numbers
- Continuous Testing With Molecule, Ansible and GitHub Actions
- Operations by Pull Request: An Ansible GitOps Story
- How to Speed Up Your Modules
