Module of the Week
The purge module facilitates cleaning external caching systems, reverse proxies and CDNs as content actually changes. This allows external caching layers to keep unchanged content cached infinitely, making content delivery more efficient, resilient and better guarded against traffic spikes.

Chad’s Book Corner
Ansible for DevOps by Jeff Geerling
“Ansible is a simple, but powerful, server and configuration management tool (with a few other tricks up its sleeve). This book helps those familiar with the command line and basic shell scripting start using Ansible to provision and manage anywhere from one to thousands of servers.”
This book is a great way to learn Ansible. It goes on a slow pace with lots of examples to work along with.
