We've mentioned it before in Ansible around the web, but there are big changes afoot with Ansible itself and the move to collections. To keep the developer community updated with the rate of progress, our own Greg DeKoenigsberg has started a newsletter, The Bullhorn. You should check it out!

Continuing with April's wander around the web, we found articles on Windows packages, Oracle, configuration verification and even managing Excel spreadsheets. Enjoy!

If you spot an interesting Ansible story on your travels, please send us the link via Mark on Twitter, and the Ansible Community team will curate the best submissions.
