    • What is Ansible?
    • How can Ansible be used for database automation.
    • Install Ansible
    • Set up SSH equivalency
    • Go over the basics of the Ansible Playbooks
    • Looking at variables and when to use them at the command line
    • Using the secrets file for passwords etc.
    • Automation of DevOps tools including Liquibase
    • Online demo of the integration of Ansible and Liquibase
