Ad-Hoc Ansible Commands
One of the keys to success with Ansible is being able to run `ad-hoc` commands. The value of `ad-hoc` commands is underscored by the fact that it is an objective of the *Red Hat Certified Ansible Specialist* exam. This exercise guides students through crafting many `ad-hoc` commands which will not only build experience with the concept but also broaden the students' exposure to various Ansible command modules. *This course is not approved or sponsored by Red Hat.*
