How to Build Ansible Collections: Experience From Community Members

Ansible Collections are starting a new era in distribution of self-contained Ansible content. Main theme of this session will be on simplicity and independency of distributing third-party modules, plugins and roles while preserving high-quality, reliability and relevance. You will hear from Ansible community members XLAB Steampunk how to start creating new content using Ansible Collections or migrating the existing one into Collections. They will draw their experience from designing and developing Ansible Collections for real world examples, such as Sensu. During the session they will compare existing distribution models with the new one, present best practices and focus on the lessons they learned while getting their hands dirty.
