Ansible + Drupal: A Fortuitous DevOps Match

Session Feedback

Human-readable configuration syntax. Great user experience. Designed for high availability and flexibility. Includes everything you need to achieve your development goals.

Am I describing Drupal 8? Well, all the above applies... but I'm actually describing Ansible, the tool for managing your infrastructure. Ansible does server provisioning, configuration management, deployments, and everything else you need to get your organization moving towards a brighter DevOps future, and it does everything more efficiently and more easily than other solutions!

In this presentation, I'll guide you through the basics of Ansible, and then demonstrate Ansible on the Dramble—a cluster of Raspberry Pi 2 computers that fits in the palm of your hand! Additionally, we'll talk about how Ansible makes the drupal-dev-vm a super-flexible and useful tool for local Drupal development.
