Ansible has been at the forefront of automation and orchestration, revolutionizing how we manage systems and deploy software. Since its inception, the Ansible community has played a pivotal role in shaping its growth and evolution. Our journey through various events and summits has been nothing short of remarkable. Today, we are thrilled to announce the next step in this journey: the introduction of “Ansible Collab.”

The Evolution of Community Gatherings

The Ansible community’s voice has been echoing through the halls of Ansible Contributor Summits since 2016. These summits, an essential part of AnsibleFest, have fostered innovation and collaboration among our community members. With the onset of the pandemic, we seamlessly transitioned to virtual formats, ensuring our community’s spirit remained unbroken.

However, as times change and the community expands, so must our approach to gatherings. Notably, AnsibleFest has evolved and is now a segment of the broader Red Hat Summit. This shift calls for a new, more inclusive, and engaging format for our community events.

Introducing Ansible Collab

In 2023, we ventured into a new format with the Ansible Community Day, focusing more on user engagement alongside the Ansible Contributor Summit. Despite our best efforts, we noticed a certain overlap and confusion about the target audience for these events. We realized the need for a more unified and clear approach.

Therefore, in 2024, we are excited to roll out Ansible Collab. This initiative is not just another event on the calendar. Instead, it’s a synergistic platform that amalgamates the best of both the Ansible Contributor Summit and the Ansible Community Day. Ansible Collab is crafted for you — the vibrant, diverse community that drives Ansible. It’s a call to everyone involved with Ansible, from upstream enthusiasts to AAP (Ansible Automation Platform) users and from collection creators to seasoned project developers.

A New Identity for Community Events

Ansible Collab aims to carve out a unique identity in the world of community events, mirroring the success of CentOS Connect and Flock to Fedora. It’s more than just a meeting or a conference; it’s a celebration of collaboration, innovation, and the shared passion for Ansible.

We envision Ansible Collab as a dynamic, inclusive, and interactive platform, facilitating deeper connections, learning, and growth within the community. Whether you are a beginner, a contributor, or a thought leader in the Ansible ecosystem, Ansible Collab is the place to be.

Join Us at the Inaugural Ansible Collab

We are eager to embark on this new chapter with you. The first Ansible Collab is scheduled to take place shortly in the beautiful city of Ghent. It promises to be an event brimming with energy, insights, and opportunities to network and collaborate.

Stay tuned for more details, and mark your calendars. Let’s come together to shape the future of automation and orchestration with Ansible. See you at Ansible Collab in Ghent on 7th February 2024!
