The webinar was originally hosted at AnsibleFest 2021.

Automation plays an increasingly important role in improving the utilization of existing resources and adopting new technology among users. Ansible Collections form a bridge between Ansible and the automated product. Because of their central role, the quality of Ansible Collections significantly impacts user experience and the reliability of automated processes.

By the end of this webinar, you’ll understand the value of high-quality Ansible Collections and the core principles of building and maintaining user-focused Ansible content. ISVs will see how high-quality Ansible Collections benefit their products and their users, Ansible Collection developers will learn the basics of designing high-quality plugins and modules and why quality matters when it comes to user experience, and Ansible users will find out what to expect from an Ansible Collection.

During the workshop, you will learn about:

  • The benefits that user-focused Ansible Collections bring to Ansible users and how those benefits lead to the successful automation of products.
  • The best practices XLAB Steampunk and Red Hat apply when designing and developing Ansible Collections, using Certified Ansible Collection for ServiceNow ITSM as an example.
