Since beginning this project, I have been slowly building up my (private) Ansible repository on Github. This repository is pulled into AWX where there are a series of jobs that run daily. The idea behind those daily jobs is to automate configuration and administration tasks such as installing the latest software and OS updates. I have also extended this capability to enhance my Kubernetes knowledge from building my workloads using the Rancher web interface to building manifest templates and deploying them using Ansible.
I looked up recently and realized that it had been almost 9 months since I posted an update here. It’s not that I have been idle, quite the contrary. The vision which originally sparked this project has continued to evolve. Too fast, unfortunately, because before I couldn’t take the time to document what I’ve done I’ve moved on to the next thing. This is especially disappointing because I’ve lost count of the number times I’ve come back to previous posts to refresh my memory about how I did something in the early days of this project.
