No that is plus but not a mandatory skill for Ansible unless you create your own module for your specific requirements.

Hey Jess,

not at all! Although Ansible is writen in Python, this is a declarative language that uses YAML file.

You would need some Jinja2 skills is you are using some of the more advanced Ansible features (such as loop, templating, etc.), but an understanding of how basic YAML structure works is more than enough.

Let me know if you have any questions

No ,python is not mandatory, as whatever modules we are using in ansible, that are already written in python.but if you know python, that will be helpful for you ansible.
