Course Description

The Ansible + GCP course is designed to provide participants with the skills and knowledge required to manage and automate Google Cloud Platform (GCP) infrastructure using Ansible. Ansible is an open-source automation tool that allows users to configure and manage multiple servers at once. GCP, on the other hand, is a cloud computing platform that offers a range of services, including compute, storage, networking, and machine learning. The course begins by introducing participants to the fundamentals of Ansible, including how to install and configure the tool, and how to write and run playbooks. Participants will also learn how to use Ansible modules to automate various tasks such as managing packages, creating users, and configuring services. Next, participants will explore the infrastructure and learn how to interact with it using Ansible. This includes learning how to use Ansible's GCP modules to create, manage, and delete GCP resources such as virtual machines, disks, and networks. Participants will also learn how to use Ansible's dynamic inventory feature to dynamically create inventory files based on GCP resources. The course then covers more advanced topics such as creating custom modules and roles in Ansible and using Ansible to deploy applications to GCP. Participants will learn how to use Ansible to automate the deployment of applications such as web servers and databases, and how to use Ansible's templating feature to generate configuration files for these applications. Throughout the course, participants will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned through hands-on labs and exercises. These labs will allow participants to practice writing and running Ansible playbooks, interacting with GCP resources, and deploying applications to GCP. By the end of the course, participants will have gained a solid understanding of how to use Ansible to manage and automate GCP infrastructure. They will be able to write and run Ansible playbooks to automate a range of tasks, from managing packages to deploying applications, and will be able to use Ansible's GCP modules to create, manage, and delete GCP resources. Overall, this course is an excellent choice for anyone looking to improve their skills in cloud automation and management. Author: Rohit Abraham (Udemy)
