System Design

Hi There,

Worrying about System Design Interviews? Most engineer struggle to solve open-ended design problems asked in these interviews like design Uber Backend, Watsapp. This interactive course is here to help you. System design is a very broad topic. Even a software engineer with many years of working experience at a top IT company may not be an expert on system design. If you want to become an expert, you need to read many books, articles, and solve real large scale system design problems.

An in-depth course that will prepare candidates for System Design Interviews at top-notch tech companies like Google, Amazon, Adobe, Uber etc. The course is Mentored & Guided by Industry experts having first-hand experience with designing, developing and maintaining scalable systems. This course has step by step approach to design any system from Requirement Gathering, System interface definition, Capacity estimation, Defining the data model, High-level design, component design and identifying/ fixing the bottlenecks. Let's get started.

Tech interviewers will often ask you to design on the whiteboard a complicated software system in 15 minutes. How is that even possible? Sometimes you could get asked to design a system like Twitter or Facebook from scratch, for example. But these systems were built over a long period of time by big teams of engineers, you would say. In this course you will see what such system design interview questions look like and what is expected from you in order to solve them.

Interviewees have a number of common problems when facing such interview questions. Some approach the questions in a chaotic way and fail to build a complete and solid design. Others lack solid understanding of how to properly design architectures that scale.

We'll teach you more about designing scalable software systems through examples. We will also teach you some strategies for presenting your knowledge and skills in the best possible way.

Designing Large Scale Distributed Systems has become the standard part of the software engineering interviews. Engineers struggle with System Design Interviews (SDIs), primarily because of the following two reasons:

  • Their lack of experience in developing large scale systems.
  • Unstructured nature of SDIs. Even engineers who’ve some experience building large systems aren’t comfortable with these interviews, mainly due to the open-ended nature of design problems that don’t have a standard answer.

A great performance in SDIs is highly rewarding since it reflects upon your ability to work with complex systems and translates into the position and compensation (salary & stocks) that the interviewing company will offer you.

Who this course is for ?
Anybody who wants to prepare for system design interview. (Mainly industry experience of 3+ years.)

Why take this Course ?
This course will equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to accomplish the following objectives:
  • Express the analysis and design of an application
  • Specify functional semantics of an application
  • Specify and evaluate software architectures
  • Select and use appropriate architectural styles
  • Understand and apply object-oriented design techniques
  • Understand and perform a design review

Key Course Takeaways ?
  • Lead the design process to develop systems and solutions
  • Define key design parameters and assess the impact of each parameter
  • Capture design use cases
  • Identify and track interfaces and interrelationships between elements throughout the design process
  • Define formal, verifiable requirements for a solution
  • Map system functions as a functional flow
  • Complete an assessment of likelihood, impact, and overall risk
  • Identify points of uncertainty and potential points of failure in a solution
