New to the world of DevOps and Automation? Awesome ,this course assumes you are an absolute beginner and I will teach you everything starting from scratch.
In this course I will start with a basic introduction to DevOps and introduce concepts such Automation, configuration management , Pull vs Push architectures and YAML and how Ansible fits into this picture. Then I'll help you setup your lab system followed by a deep dive into the various Ansible concepts such as roles, inventory files, handlers. You'll have plenty of opportunity to practice what you've learnt with hands-on lab exercises.
Real World Final Project
We'll finish strong by doing a Final Project to give you real world experience by automating deployment of Elasticsearch which is a SecDevOps tool used to analyse system/application log data using Ansible.
Why this course?
I have created this course with a focus on teaching skills from scratch, I try and explain each concept and keyword that is used during the course so that it is easier for you to learn these concepts and implement DevOps and Automation in real world. Here are some student testimonials
What is Ansible?
Ansible is a radically simple IT automation engine that automates cloud provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, intra-service orchestration, and many other IT needs.
Designed for multi-tier deployments since day one, Ansible models your IT infrastructure by describing how all of your systems inter-relate, rather than just managing one system at a time.
It uses no agents and no additional custom security infrastructure, so it's easy to deploy - and most importantly, it uses a very simple language (YAML, in the form of Ansible Playbooks) that allow you to describe your automation jobs in a way that approaches plain English.

I have been an IT engineer for over 11 years now, during this time I have worked in many fields like networking, systems engineering, virtualization, unified communications, and more recently Cyber Security. I love tweaking around with systems, deploying and configuring enterprise infrastructure and applications.
On a personal level, I love reading about historical events and characters and have been trying to learn how to surf (to no avail ;)).
