Well, that brings us to the end of yet another amazing chapter. Let's quickly summarize the things we have learnt so far!

First up, we started with a brief understanding of AWS Data Pipeline along with its concepts and terminologies. We later also learnt a bit about pipeline definitions and how easy it is to compose and use them. We even built our very first simple Hello World pipeline using a pipeline definition, followed by a series of examples that you can tweak and use, according to your own use cases. Towards the end, we also explored a few simple AWS CLI commands required to work with pipelines and topped it all off with a handy guide to some next steps as well.

In the next and final chapter, we will be learning and exploring AWS's versatile and powerful IoT services, so stick around!
