Ansible is a configuration management tool like Puppet, Chef, CFEngine and others. But Ansible works without the concept of a master/slave setup and it is very easy to learn, setup and use. The ease of use has absolutely no influence on the available power. With Ansible it is easy to install and configure software, maintain user accounts etc.

The course teacher has contributed to the Ansible code base, and he is a member of the ‘Ansible Ambassador Group’.

Course attendees receive the following documentation:

  • : A student pack with copies of the presentations, lab exercises, answers to the exercises, and background information.
  • Shortly after the course the student will receive a certificate as a proof of participation


  • This course provides an introduction into configuration management in general, and a deeper insight of the Ansible configuration management tool. The Ansible basics will be covered. At the end of the course you will be able to understand and write your own “plays”, “playbooks” and “roles”.
  • When the number of systems to manage is growing, a point will be reached where managing these systems by hand is not feasible anymore. This is the moment to introduce configuration management. Ansible is an easy to learn, but very powerful tool to manage a large number of systems, without much effort.

Target audience

Linux/UNIX system managers who want to use Ansible as a configuration management tool.
Devops engineers who want to use Ansible for a complete environment deployment.
