CBT Nuggets announces the release of a new online video training course, Ansible Essentials.

This 17-video course with CBT Nuggets trainer Shawn Powers is designed for IT pros who are looking to develop careers in DevOps, equipping learners with the knowledge and skills to install, configure, and manage Ansible while learning about playbooks, roles, templates, loops and conditionals, Ansible Tower, and more.

Ansible Essentials introduces learners to Ansible, the open source automation platform used to automate application deployment, cloud provisioning, and configuration management. Its robust features give IT pros and DevOps practitioners a set of tools to dramatically improve efficiencies and develop scalable services to meet the ever-changing needs of the IT landscape.

"Ansible is ideal for anyone currently maintaining servers, or anyone interested in doing so in the future," Powers said. "I think Ansible has more of an operations slant to it than other DevOps tools. It is certainly something that can be managed programmatically, but Ansible 'thinks' like a system administrator."

Powers brings real-world pragmatism to his teaching with more than 10 years of industry experience. Powers has been a champion of open source technologies for years and serves as an associate editor for the Linux Journal. He has been a CBT Nuggets trainer since 2009.

"Ansible is so simple to use, I think everyone should learn it," Powers said. "From a DevOps standpoint, it's heavier on the 'Ops' than the 'Dev,' but still fits squarely into the DevOps landscape. Everyone owes it to themselves to learn how much time Ansible can save, regardless of their career focus."

Ansible Essentials is available as part of a CBT Nuggets subscription. Subscriptions are available for individuals or teams, and can be paid monthly, semi-annually, or yearly.

About CBT Nuggets: CBT Nuggets provides on-demand IT training for individuals and teams that is available 24/7, from any device.
