Presentation Summaries:

Vincent Roy:  Introduction to Ansible

Ansible is automation for everyone. Ansible seamlessly unites workflow orchestration with configuration management, provisioning, and application deployment in one easy-to-use and deploy platform.

Regardless of where you start with Ansible, you’ll find our simple, powerful and agentless automation platform has the capabilities to solve your most challenging problems.

In this talk, Vincent will cover the basics of Ansible and demonstrate how it can be used to manage a simple webserver and how it can be used to deploy the monctonug.net site.

Doreen Clemons:  Introduction to Fritzing

While circuit design with a breadboard and jumper wires is fine for the lone hobbyist, sometimes you have to share your work.  Even a photograph of your spaghetti-wiring often doesn't give the full picture.  When you're collaborating or need some help debugging, a clear diagram is worth a thousand emails...or StackExchange comments.

Fritzing is an open-source CAD (computer-aided drafting) tool created specifically for circuit design.  In this talk, Doreen will demonstrate the basics of locating parts, laying out a circuit, and (as usual) cover some of the "gotchas" in the software.
