Network Automation with Ansible Workshop

August 27, 2019Londonetc venues St Pauls

What is An Ansible Workshop?

Ansible's simple automation framework means that previously isolated network administrators can speak the same language of automation as the rest of the IT organisation.
Join our technical experts for a one-day, hands-on workshop. You’ll get a comprehensive overview of Ansible and discover how your network teams will be able to:
  • Use the same simple, powerful, and agentless automation framework IT operations and development are already using
  • Use a data model that's seperate from the execution layer that easily spans heterogeneous network hardware
  • Benefit from a wide variety of community and vendor-generated playbook and role content to help accelerate network automation projects.
The one-day workshop will cover (but not subject to) the following:


  • What is Ansible and The Ansible Way
  • How Ansible works with networking devices
  • Running Ad-Hoc Commands
  • Playbook Basics and how to accomplish basic router connectivity 
  • Introduction to Roles: Making playbooks reusable and platform agnostic
