Automation has been a marketing buzzword in the industry for a long time.

But that doesn't make it irrelevant.

One area that needs attention is how automation affects the database.

Should we automate databases? And if so, should we automate all the things? Where can I start? What are the dangers of automation?

This presentation will explore those questions and provide a good starting place for anyone who wants to get going with automation.

Specifically, we will look at Ansible, a popular automation tool. We will get to know Ansible concepts by using database-centric examples.

The examples provided will be based in MySQL, but the concepts can be used on any database environment.

By the end of this presentation, everyone should be ready to automate their databases responsibly.
