 some basic Ruby knowledge. The folks that run it are very enthusiastic
 about the devops movement. Mmm, I have been increasingly up to my
 eyeballs in Ansible of late... more than just a config manager, it's a
 full-house automation tool. It's agentless (the only client
 dependencies are ssh and python-simplejson, and in a pinch you can run
 without json, though it seriously hampers things), readable,
 role-based, and is real easy to learn. (Put it this way: I messed with
 puppet for a couple months off and on and never really got my head
 around it. I had Ansible doing hello world in an hour and hitting
 everything I had in a week.)

And now they've got it hitting PowerShell on Windows...

If there were a local class on it, I'd take it.
