So, here we are. Yet another chapter comes to an end! But, before we move on to the next chapter, here's a quick round up of the things we have learned so far.

We started off with a quick introduction to Amazon Elastic Beanstalk, followed by a dive into its concepts and terminologies. Then we created a simple development environment for our WordPress application using the Elastic Beanstalk management console and the EB CLI. Along the way, we also learnt how to deploy the application to a specific environment using the EB CLI, and finally, learned how to quickly clone an environment and configure it for handling production workloads. Last but not least, we explored and learned how to leverage Elastic File System to create a durable and scalable file sharing system to be used by our WordPress setup, and concluded the chapter with some key insights and next steps.

In the next chapter, we will be starting off by exploring some security services in the form of WAF and Shield. So, stay tuned...
