In the summer of 2013 I worked on a project that introduced me to Ansible. I was so impressed by it that I wrote a blog post. I found Ansible to be different to the catalog of software that constantly tries to grab our attention these days, and I’ve pretty much evangelised it since.
From presenting at DevOps Cardiff, and the London Splunk User Group, I have tried to spread the word. Because Ansible is the embodiment of something I’ve been going on about for years - we keep trying to make things more complicated than they need to be.
Making things complicated isn’t the answer, making them simple is!
So today I am really proud to say that I’m becoming a small part of Ansible Inc. From today I will be their first representative in the UK and Europe (after all, it’s much easier for me to travel to Europe than it is for US based folk to pop over).
For the time being I’ll still be juggling my commitments to VNTX and DevOpsGuys as well, but from today you can also reach me as mark AT ansible.com
