Pushing your first project to github

Make sure git is tracking your project.

  1. Using your terminal/command line, get inside the folder where your project files are kept: cd /path/to/my/codebase.

You cannot do this simply by opening the folder normally, you must do this with the command line/terminal.

Do you need a refresher on using your command line/terminal? I've compiled my favorite resources here.

  1. Check if git is already initialized: git status

Managing OpenStack instances with Ansible through an SSH bastion host

Managing OpenStack instances with Ansible through an SSH bastion host

I'm be using DreamCompute as my OpenStack provider, but there are dozens to choose from. I assume you already have Ansible and the OpenStack CLI tools installed.


With the proliferation of OpenStack public clouds offering free and intro tiers, it's becoming very easy to effectively run a simple application for free or nearly free. Also with the emergence of Ansible, you don't need to learn and deploy complicated tools to do configuration management.
