Ansible is a configuration management system, like Puppet, Chef, and SaltStack. Ansible has a very gradual learning curve and requires only ssh and Python on the target host(s). It's as fun as Puppet, slightly less secure, and much less ritualized. Come try CM that's simple and quick.

Objectives: Get up and running quickly on Ansible. Learn Ansible basics like:
- Writing a playbook
- Running ad-hoc commands
- Error handling
- Writing idempotent scripts

Requirements: Student should have a laptop capable of running Virtual Machines, perferably with Virtual Box running on it.

What we're about

The Software Freedom School exists to teach the world how to use and why to choose free software.

David L. Willson and Heather L. Willson started SFS in 2013 to help teach the world free software and to feed the whole student, mind (techie classes), body (delicious food), and spirit (libre software). We host Software Freedom First Saturday at the SFS HQ or Englewood Public Library: From 11am - 3pm you can learn about free software.

There are other events throughout the month and activities you can become involved in: Linux Camp and Study Groups to name a couple.

Our ideal members, via Meetup, are people, just like you, looking to learn more about freedom in the software community. It could be a new graduate, a person looking to change careers, someone who is super savvy but has been using the proprietary software for too long!

We are a community based company in the Denver area. We want to partner with hacker-spaces, maker-spaces, LUG's, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and small, free schools like us. Our goal is to teach the world how to use and why to choose free software and it would be wonderful if you joined us!

We look forward to meeting you and are excited for you to be part of the libre community!
