September 1, 2021 - CINLUG Hybrid Meeting

Please note: Hybrid meeting with a new location—Moser Consulting in Castleton.

Topic: Tower As Code: Managing Ansible Tower / Controller As Code

Presenter: Sean Sullivan

This will be our second attempt at a hybrid, virtual + in-person meeting made possible by our new host, Moser Consulting! Moser has wonderful facilities and has graciously offered to host our monthly meetings going forward.

Sean Sullivan will walk the audience through his journey to implement Ansible Automation Platform as code. We will explore how he and other consultants took the Ansible Tower collection to drive the creation of the redhat_cop.tower_configuration collection, which is now used to simplify their management of Ansible Tower using "Infrastructure as Code" and development & operations (DevOps). Sean will demonstrate the process used to implement this solution and how other companies can do the same.

Sean is a senior consultant in Red Hat's telecommunications sector group and a contributor to Awx. He is the co-maintainer of Controller Configuration Collection. Sean started with Ansible to automate a networking lab while in college at Purdue University. He has spent the last four years at Red Hat helping companies across industries realize their automation goals using the Ansible Automation Platform.

Please note that given the recent surge in Covid cases, if attending in person, you must wear a mask regardless of your vaccination status comply with our host's requirements as well as those of the Marion County Health Department.

Parking is free and conveniently at the front Moser Consulting's north HQ building.

June 2, 2021 - Online meeting

Please note: Due to the unavailability of our normal meeting room, the June 2, 2021 CINLUG meeting will be held online.

Topic: Member Check-in

Host: Pat Milligan

There won't be a presentation. The CINLUG board of directors wasn't able to arrange for an outside presenter this month. Instead of a regular meeting, this month we'll have more like an open-house were you may drop in anytime to catch-up with other members.

Jitsi Meet, on the 8x8 hosted public service, will be used for the event. You can use the WebRTC Javascript to connect via most modern web browsers, or install a mobile app. (Be sure to install Jitsi Meet. The Jitsi Desktop application is for VoIP calls.) You may receive a notification about installing a calendar integration extension. This may be declined. To test your connection before our meeting, you may visit: https://meet.jit.si/ and start your own meeting. We used Jitsi Meet for a few meetings last year with mixed results. Like any Internet communication application, the performance may be better with a wired connection. The Jitsi UI has an option to adjust your video quality, which might help. You may also adjust the audio volume for individual participants.

The Jitsi Meet software is opensource under the Apache license. You may access the source on github: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet.
