  1. `Great stuff! Plz continue with Ansible lessons….you are great at explaining and transffering knowledge. Thanks a bunch <3

  2. Man you are God sent! There is hardly anyone who took pains to show interaction between AWS, CloudFormation and Ansible. The Visual studio code SSH was a nice cherry on top. Thanks a million. You should make an Udemy course out of this, cos it will help a lot of people.
