What's in the book?

Throughout the book you'll take an example open source Python web application through a complete deployment on a virtual private server. In each chapter, we will first learn how to deploy the application manually, to fully understand each step, then automate the steps with Fabric and Ansible. We also set up a continuous integration server to automate the deployment process once we have our Ansible playbooks in place.
