If you’re not (yet) familiar with Ansible or you just started your Ansible journey, this book is a great startup.
Ansible is all about automation and provisioning of servers.
You create and define a desired state (from a configuration perspective) and Ansible will provision the server exactly like you want to.
You’ll start your journey with great example playbooks to teach you the basics.
Within in a playbook you define what Ansible has to do and if something is done what to do next.
The book has great easy to read examples, this makes it easy for you to learn it by your self.
You can setup your own lab environment and then compare all your results with the expected results from the book.
This way you will get the best experience of learning Ansible.
I can recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning Ansible.
