Ansible Best Practices

Submitted by OMPRAGASH VISWANATHAN (@ompragash) on Monday, 2 April 2018

Technical level: Intermediate Status: Submitted


Ansible is an open source automation platform.

Ansible wants you to follow an easier path.If comes from development background, you’ll quickly note Ansible is not meant to be a programming language.

The idea with Ansible is you should be able to write some playbooks.

So In my talk i’ll explain Ansible Best Practice.


Ansible playbooks are meant to be minimalistic and simple, super easy to read, very little to guess about. A small number of concepts, not a lot.

Playbooks are about plain English, and i like to talk in plain English to. That means everything we do need to be simple to explain, and that means there should be one logical way to do something.

So In my talk i’ll share the best practices of Ansible.
