About the course

Ansible is a powerful tool for automating deployments. With a simple SSH connection, it is possible to automate many systems administration and deployment tasks. But, when we leverage the Ansible AWS modules, we can take our automation to the next level.

Managing AWS with Ansible is a course that shows how we can use the AWS Ansible modules to dynamically provision cloud infrastructure, all from our Ansible control node. We’ll discuss many key modules and also look at how we can bring them together to deploy full environments in the AWS cloud!
