Structuring a YAML Playbook with Ansible

YAML, or YAML Ain't Markup Language, is a data serialization language geared toward making human-readable files. Oftentimes you see YAML used in configuration files and other places that often require human editing and use. Ansible is just one bit of software that utilizes YAML, but with a confident knowledge of the data serialization language, writing playbooks can be a simple task. No Ansible experience is needed for this activity.
