Here's a quick round up of the topics that we have covered so far in this chapter!

We started off by learning and understanding a bit about the AWS Code Suite of services and how they tie into the continuous integration and continuous delivery life cycle. We then learned a bit about AWS CodeDeploy and how easy it is to get started with it. We created a simple CodeCommit repository and used that to store our sample WordPress application as well. Later, we looked at AWS CodeDeploy and how it works. We also configured a CodeDeploy agent and leveraged the AppSpec file for our WordPress application's deployment life cycle. Finally, we tied it all together by integrating the work done so far with AWS CodePipeline and ended the chapter with a few essential things to read and try out on your own!

In the next chapter, we will be exploring two application-specific services and look at how you can leverage them for your requirements: Amazon SQS and Amazon SNS. So stay tuned!
