A colleague was asking me questions today about Ansible playbooks, roles, tasks etc and how they translated from Puppet nomenclature (he is coming to Ansible with Puppet experience - much the same as I did actually). He thought it would be handy to have a ‘translation guide’.
On July 2nd I gave a talk at DevOps Cardiff related to the blog post I wrote last year, on Puppet vs Chef vs Ansible.
I’ve spent my entire IT career automating. To me, the point of technology is to make life easier, so I tend to look for any way I can to make computers do ‘the heavy lifting’.
