Join Jesse Keating for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Learning Ansible.
- Before you begin this course, there's a few things you need to know. In this course, I'll be demonstrating Ansible through the Linux command line. If you're new to Linux, you may want to check out the course Learn the Linux Command Line: The Basics. If you have a Mac, you can follow along in the terminal as well, but keep in mind Mac OS X is not Linux, so some of the coursework will not translate directly. I'll be using a virtual machine running Fedora 25. You'll be able to follow along with any Fedora release newer than 22.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 or CentOS 7 will work as well. Finally you'll need a text editor that you're familiar with. I'll be using Vim, but any text editor that can edit plain text files will do just fine.
