Ansible Summit 2021

April 8, 202112:00 AM - 12:00 AM (GMT+02:00) Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna

Join your Red Hat and IBM colleagues for Ansible Automation Summit 2021

Learning by doing is the new style of effective education. During Ansible Automation Summit 2021, running from now until June 16, 2021, all Red Hat and IBM employees can use this opportunity to master their Ansible skills and boost collaboration by learning, teaming up, and having fun together.

Regardless of your role, there’s an opportunity for everyone to participate:

  • Role one: People who have observed a need and have an automation idea to address it - no developer skills are needed. For example, business professionals who know their area of expertise may have ideas to improve their daily work and processes. Or maybe a customer complaint about a complex process, would be made simpler through automation. Our team will match your idea up with a developer.
  • Role two: Those with decent IT know-how, project management and/or understanding of IT processes, can submit a use case with a description of the changes and improvements.
  • Role three: Developers familiar with script, code, or handling apps from DEV or OPS side can submit the code with the use case. Alternatively, they can be matched with a business professional’s idea and create the code for their submitted use case.

You’ll also have a chance to learn via online trainings and live sessions, share expertise with Red Hat experts, and collaborate on automation ideas with other IBMers and Red Hatters.
