Good news! We don’t have to wait until fall for the greatest IT automation event of them all. This year, AnsibleFest will be part of Red Hat Summit, the premier open-source technology event and it’s only a month away. From May 23 – 25, Ansible enthusiasts from around the world will crowd Boston in search of exciting automation experience!

With a diverse lineup of live sessions, keynotes, hands-on labs, and partner programming, Red Hat Summit promises to cater to everyone’s interest and enable attendees to stay up-to-date on the latest trends in the field of open source, hybrid cloud, and automation.

We are already hyped to be there as a proud sponsor and active member of the Ansible community, always happy to chat with fellow enthusiasts, and share our experience.

Kicking it off with Ansible Community Day

Ansible Community Day will set the stage for the main event and will be a delightful prelude to Red Hat Summit. On May 22, Ansible users, partners, and contributors will gather to discuss the Ansible project, community, and broader ecosystem. Don’t miss the chance to be part of the growth and development of the Ansible community.

We are excited to do our part with a session on AI-powered Ansible Playbooks. While there are many AI tools that can create playbooks in seconds, the current state of AI systems and their knowledge base for writing Ansible Playbooks is not yet sufficient for generating production-ready playbooks without manual rewriting. Fortunately, tools such as Ansible Lint and Steampunk Spotter can help us check and iteratively enhance the quality of playbooks through playbook scanning. This combination of AI and Ansible Playbook scanning tools not only speeds up playbook writing process and produces high-quality, reliable, and secure playbooks, but also provides good examples for AI tools to get smarter and produce better results.

Join our team for a captivating discussion on how AI-powered Ansible Playbooks combined with open-source collaboration can streamline processes and transform the future of automation.

Stop by our booth to get live demo

In addition to numerous sessions and workshops, the event will offer plenty of networking opportunities. We invite you to visit our booth and say hi to our experts, who will be happy to tell you more about XLAB Steampunk services, including building Red Hat Certified Ansible Collections and offering Ansible consulting, deployment, support and trainings.

And most importantly, they will tell you all about our Steampunk Spotter, an Ansible Playbook scanning tool and showcase how you can use it to create and maintain Ansible Playbooks with ease and simplify upgrade to Ansible Automation Platform 2. Catch the opportunity to find out how Spotter can benefit you and see a hands-on demo of the tool. You can schedule a one-on-one meeting with our experts in advance simply by contacting us.

We look forward to seeing you there! In the meantime, you can take Spotter for a spin and share your thoughts with our team.
