This chapter provided you with a list of best practices to apply while working with PDI. If you follow the given advice, your work will not only be useful, but also flexible, reusable, documented, and neatly presented.

You were introduced to PDI plugins, a mechanism that allows you to customize the tool.

A quick review about remote execution and clustering was given for those interested in developing PDI in large environments.

Some links and references were provided for those of you who, after reading the book and particularly this chapter, are anxious to learn more.
