Ansible is a popular automation platform for a variety of uses, including network automation. In this 10-lesson course, instructor Josh VanDerra provides a detailed overview of how Ansible works, how to create playbooks and modules, the importance of idempotency, and a walk-through using Ansible to automate tasks in a Meraki WLAN.
This course is intended for network administrators and engineers who want to explore Ansible for automating common tasks. Some familiarity with basic scripting will be helpful, though not required. The lesson assumes the learner is familiar with concepts such as variables, configuration files, and outputs. The course is just under two hours long and is divided into 10 lessons and one course introduction.
