Ansible is an open-source automation and infrastructure-as-a-code solution introduced in 2012 and acquired by Red Hat in 2015. Ansible is a Python-based tool available for almost every Unix-related environment, including multiple Linux distributions and BSD as well as Windows with WSL. Through its ease of use and powerful agentless architecture, Ansible can become not only a convenience but also a strategic advantage for achieving optimal scalability, efficiency, performance, and management in IT stacks.

Managing Infrastructure and Application Deployments in an automated way is one of the key skills for every professional in the DevOps/Sysadmin world. As complexity increases, tools that will provide a higher level of automation and minimize manual intervention are now a necessity more than ever before.

The Code.Learn Mastering Ansible program, designed in exclusive collaboration with Athens Tech College, provides knowledge for one of the most prominent tools in this area with unique features combined with simplicity and low learning curve that have helped render it as one of the most sought-after skills in the industry. Participants will learn how to configure, manage and use Ansible to install and control software on servers, deploy fully-configured applications as well as provision servers with pre-defined environments as needed.
