Shownotes for episode 5, published Wednesday, 4 Aug 2016

In this episode I talk to James Cammarata, head of Ansible core engineering to discuss the Ansible project.

We discuss how it’s used as a config management tool in both a push/pull scenario, how Ansible can be used as a deployment tool and an orchestrator. We touch on the terminology, Red Hat’s acquisition, ideal use cases, how to get started with Ansible, Ansible vs. Puppet and so much more.
