Automating Development Environments with Ansible & Chezmoi


Replicating a development environment is tedious, but using Ansible and chezmoi makes your environment easy to replicate.

I've customized my environment to my preferences over the past decade. I often pick up new tools or configurations on-the-job or at-home. Duplicating configuration changes between multiple systems sucked, until I started managing it with Ansible and chezmoi.

This session is suitable for developers and sysadmins comfortable with the command line. Prior Ansible experience is unnecessary. We'll discuss practical strategies for organizing environment automation, experiences managing multiple types of packages with Ansible playbooks, and how to keep home and work setups consistent, but also separated.
