If you pass by our country, always welcome for the free beer we owe you 😉 When the new courseware is ready, we'll send you a copy. Thanks for your nice contribution to the Free Software and OpenSource community! Our course link: http://www.linuxbe.com/sysadmin.html

      I am a green developer, I'm enjoying Linux, I think it is so good to use it. Ansible is a tough challenge for me but by watching your videos I won't have any issues

      Thanks for the excellent and engaging videos and demonstration. I was most curious about managing ssh using key and I liked it. It would be nice if you cover data structure like loop , variables etc a bit. Overall, excellent !!!

      I like your videos a lot. One suggestion is add all the command you run on text on Video description. Just saying. 🙂

      Before having a look at this video, I had already started to play with ansible myself. Yours is a great introduction, but I think that you missed another important use case for ansible: provision your own workstations, not necessarily servers. For example, you have a playbook for setting up an Ubuntu distribution on your laptop and desktop, another one for doing the same with Manjaro, etc. At least in my very case, that's what I'm going to use ansible for.

      Thanks Jay.. I've really learnt a lot on your channel..I'm grateful for the quality content you give out here..I actually learnt everything about Linux here and I'm really comfortable using Linux now coming from the work of windows.. but then I started setting up VPSs and deploying applications for businesses and in a quest for having a lot more comfortable sys-Admin tool, I got to know about webmin-Virtualmin… I easily set this up on any VPS and get everything working but the biggest hitch is the Postfix mail server, it never sends or receive emails, so I really do wish you could do a series on webmin-Virtualmin and how to get Postfix functional on it…Thanks a million Jay..
