Today software engineers build complex software for a global audience to meet the ever-growing digital demands. As a result, the industry tries to keep up with the needs and competition. In software development, it is evident that trying to run a "simple" project by implementing a series of manual protocols, backed by instructions, just doesn’t work well anymore. This manual repetition of tasks does not add value to the project or even the organization. What can be done to maximize efficiency and scale up development? Automation to the rescue! Automation saves time, money, and efforts by increasing productivity.

In this course, “Hands-on Guide To Automation With Ansible,” you are going to learn about the significance of automation in software development. You will also understand how Ansible can effectively fulfill your automation needs in projects of any scale or size.

Ansible is an open-source IT automation engine which can eliminate the drudgery of manual automation, deployment, and maintenance. It can help you dramatically improve the scalability, consistency, and reliability of your IT environment. It can also automate the configuration of a wide range of systems and devices such as databases, storage devices, networks, and firewalls. In simple terms, Ansible enables us to define our infrastructure as code in a simple declarative manner.

You can Use automation to your advantage by implementing Ansible automating tasks, such as configuration management, the orchestration of software lifecycles, provisioning tasks such as installing an operating system on a remote computer and deploying an application on top of the remote servers.
