Writing Ansible module for fun and profit
2020-02-05, 14:00–17:00, B.2.011

Ansible provides a pluggable architecture that makes it easy to extend functionalities of Ansible. This workshop will be a hands-on session where I will discuss development process of the Ansible Module.

This workshop is helpful for developers and system administrators with some knowledge of Python to develop their custom modules and contribute back to the community.

In this session, I will also explain the development process and open source contribution process followed in Ansible Open Source Project.

I will focus on -
Ansible Module Architecture
Ansible development environment
Ansible Module development
Ansible Contribution process

In this workshop we will create a custom module and tests its functionality with Ansible.
