System Design Interview
We know. Most of the time, job interviews suck. Practices make it less suck
The key is to mix your learning mode.
Passive Learning Mode: Preparation
You might find a lot of resources on the internet but here, I want to keep it small so that it could help you to begin preparing while doesn't overload you with a lot of resources that you would never complete. Reading articles and watching videos help, but those are passive learning. In the end, I believe backend system design requires you to be an active learner
For preparation I recommend:
- Video resources
- system-design-primer (Go through a few examples to get used to the pattern.)
- time allocation
Active Learning Mode: Practice
If you are seeking someone to help you to prepare, we are here for you. For the record, I have been helping 20+ candidates to prepare their system design interviews and I received a lot of positive feedback.
“He's very helpful and I really benefit a lot from this mock session.” - Candidate L
“The input for time allocation is really helpful. Which I think I did not behave very well all this part in previous interviews” - Candidate L
“Very friendly and patient explanation for me who is having such type of interview the very first time. Pointed out couples of key points for improvement.” - Candidate F

When is the best timing to schedule a practice session?
ASAP once you know you are going to have a system design interview. It's best to see how you do after a few days of passive learning.
