In this chapter, we learned about data model concepts, including tables, items and attributes, primary key, and indexes and their design patterns.
We started the chapter by discussing the DynamoDB data model where we understood the importance of primary keys. We then took a look at a few valid and invalid table schema. We understood the basic significance of DynamoDB indexes. Finally, there was some explanation of the DynamoDB data types that we have used so far in the chapter. This is a basic chapter and we are going to cover similar topics in the upcoming chapters in greater detail.
In this chapter we took a look at the AWS management console. But along with the management console we can interact with DynamoDB in numerous ways, which we are going to see in the next chapter along with the installation and configuration details. We will learn how to access DynamoDB in the management console, command line, and the Eclipse plugin.
