In this talk, Thomas will be talking about the caveats and hurdles to using Ansible on Azure as well as demoing a 'docker appliance' that he has written that makes using Ansible and Azure together a breeze, as well as using Ansible to spin up Azure VMs and using Ansible's dynamic inventory on Azure.
