Central Ohio Linux User Group
Date: Wednesday, May 25, 2016, 7 - 9 PM EDT

Please RSVP if you plan to attend.


We have a double header!

First, Josh Preston from Red Hat will introduce Ansible. "Simple, powerful, agentless: Ansible is a premier tool used by DevOps teams to manage, automate and orchestrate large and complex infrastructures and applications. Come learn what it is, how it works, break down some examples, explore Ansible Galaxy and witness a couple playbook executions. Questions and friendly banter are welcome!"

Then our own Jim Prior will present on some dark sides of Ansible based on his experience using it on a recent project.

As always, feel free to bring with you any ailing or problematic systems for expert diagnosis (or destruction).

There are no dues or fees.


The meeting will be held at:

2 Miranova Place
Columbus, OH 43215

Please sign in with security and then take the elevator to the eleventh floor.


Orange section in parking garage

NOTE: please RSVP so that the correct number of parking vouchers can be secured. Please park in the Orange section of the parking garage, which is specifically for guest parking. Parking in any other spot runs the risk of taking someone’s assigned parking spot. There is little risk of doing so at 7 PM, but why risk causing any trouble? Please park in the orange section. We will have parking vouchers so you do not have to pay to park if you RSVP'd.


On-street parking is available at meters. I do not know how late they are enforced. We are in the Car2Go service area, so Car2Go users can park at nearby meters for free. [ed. I had forgotten about Car2Go. Are they still active?]

Thanks to CoverMyMeds for hosting us! They're hiring all sorts of technical folks, check out their job postings and tech blog ScriptScribe.
