Becoming Ansible with Josh Duffney

About Show #723

Are you ready to become Ansible? Richard chats with Josh Duffney about his book on Ansible - using a play on the term "become," which is the privilege elevation command in Ansible. The conversation turns to how you evolve as an infrastructure-as-code person, doing basic automation tasks first, but ultimately turning into a source-code-controlled library-building-team that makes deployment of applications and resources easy, reliable, and powerful. If you're coming from the Windows world and trying to learn Ansible, this is the book for you!


Josh Duffney is a DevOps engineer who has been doing systems administration work since 2011. He specializes in infrastructure development primarily focused on infrastructure as code. Josh is a Pluralsight author of several courses on the topic of automation and infrastructure development and blogs at
