    1. Hi my dear friend. this course helped me so much and let me understand bases of ansible better and let me learn some cool trick. Thank you so much for this course. Also I have this question that I am documenting my understandings from Ansible , Is it possible to use your videos as a resourse? I want to publish it very soon in my LinkedIn account. If it's possible please let me know and give me your LinkedIn account ID. Regards

    2. Dedicated 19 days of my time and what a ride it has been. Can't thank you enough Jay. God Bless You! You indeed have a unique Gift which only a few have. you make the most complex of things seem like child's play. thanks you once again and keep it going. I have hooked

    3. Outstanding work on this series of videos. Ansible's Wiki leaves something something to be desired, particularly for beginners. My ADD is strong, but you kept my attention and I was able to absorb the clear and concise foundation of knowledge you provide. I can't wait to deploy these techniques in my homelab of ~20 or so hosts, and retire my ever-growing bash script library :).

      You're the man.

    4. Thank you so much for this amazing series they really helped me a lot, but in this last one when I copied the ssh template and the ssh restart it failed, breaking my 2 VM's, one with parrot os and other with fedora, it says config file has errors, even after I deleted the allow users line so the file is exactly as it was, on the parrot os after purging and reinstalling ssh-server it says cant find sshd.service
