Description: Aaron talks with Michael DeHaan (@laserllama) - CTO at AnsibleWorks and Mark Hinkle (@mrhinkle) - Sr. Director of Open Source Communities at Citrix, about Ansible and the evolution of orchestration and automation tools. We discuss the need for tools to do more than just configuration management while simultaneously reducing complexity of the products

Topic 1 – Michael, you’ve got a very interesting background.  First off, you’re a Raleigh person, not a Silicon Valley guy.  You “grew up” at Red Hat and prior to Ansible you created Cobbler and even have some patents to your name in this space. Give everyone a little background.


Topic 2 - For those that aren’t familiar with Cobbler, what is it and why did you invent it?


Topic 3 – Let’s move on to Ansible, I attended your session today (my impressions).  What is Ansible and why AnsibleWorks?  Probably the first question you get, why Ansible and not Puppet/Chef?  Seems to be Configuration Management, App Delivery & CI (Continuous Integration or Delivery) all in one? Infrastructure as code - rPath and Bronto ?  What is AnsibleWorks AWX?


Topic 4 – You were just on FLOSS Weekly and you are speaking here at OSCON, The product is under a GPL license.  does that differentiate you in the market?

Topic 5 - Technical Details - No Agent, talks SSH and can be written in anything that returns JSON?
