In this OpenShift Commons Briefing, Michael Hrivnak, a principal software engineer at Red Hat, discusses how you can use Ansible to create Kubernetes native applications. Ansible Operator, included in the  Operator SDK, allows you to package your operational knowledge (how you install and maintain your application) in the form of Ansible Roles and Playbooks.  While this talk does cover the usage of Ansible and how it's been integrated with the Kubernetes API, it also delves into the inner workings of the Ansible Operator itself, serving as a model for other such Operators to be built.

Additional guest speakers include: Carol Chen, Daniel Messer and Diane Mueller
