The webinar was originally hosted at AnsibleFest 2021.

When we write an Ansible playbook or role, we usually do so because we want to automate error-prone manual tasks. But if the Ansible playbook we wrote is unreliable, all we did is replace one source of problems with another. Fortunately, with a little bit of knowledge, discipline, and help from appropriate tools, everyone can write a high-quality Ansible playbook.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to make your Ansible playbooks reliable and versatile and get familiar with the tools you can use to improve the quality of your playbooks, such as our Ansible Playbook Quality Scanner. As a bonus, you’ll get answers from a developer involved in maintaining the Molecule and Ansible Lint tools.

During the workshop, you will learn about:

  • The most common mistakes that make Ansible playbooks and roles unreliable.
  • The tools we have at our disposal to help us make our Ansible setup more reliable and robust.
  • How we can make sure our content does not bit(rot).
