What about learning about System Design with a Java flavor? In this book, you will learn essential fundamentals for System design within the Java ecosystem so you know what technologies to use to design a Java system!

Nowadays, most companies ask for system design knowledge in their interviews. In this book, you will learn the fundamentals of a cloud system, how to make it scalable, and how to build robust systems. Instead of learning tools, focus on the concepts so you don't waste time trying to learn everything.

The Systems design interview became very popular in the market nowadays. After the big techs Google, Meta, Microsoft, Amazon and other companies started using it, all the other companies are doing the same. That’s why knowing how the systems design interview works is key for you to get a good job. The interviewee will give you a vague question such as design Youtube or design Instagram, then it’s up to you to make the right questions to explain how you will build the system.

It’s very important to assume what the system should be like, therefore, every question you make assume the simplest. Remember that on those interviews you will have something around 1 hour. Accept that you won’t be able to create a very robust system in this but it will be enough to get your knowledge tested on the subject. Depending on what you decide to use on the Systems Design interview, you might be challenged by the interviewer to explain why you made that technology choice. If you talk about a technology, it’s better for you to pick one that you know very well.

Differently than the algorithms interview, the answer you give to build a system is subjective. This means you will have to know why you choose the technologies and what are the trade offs.

The main objective of this book is to give you a solid foundational knowledge about Systems Design so you can learn any new technology faster. Programmers are not what the market wants anymore. Nowadays, companies are looking for software engineers, this means, a developer who can analyze a problem and come up with effective solutions. The ability of articulating a solution, creating good quality code, talking to coworkers, preparing documentation with architecture solutions, designing database, create performant and scalable systems are the skills companies are looking for. Some years ago, knowing a Java framework was enough for the market but the scenario has changed. That’s why the most powerful skill any software can have is the ability to learn, the ability to be a software engineer.

In a Systems Design interview, there are several key considerations that you should focus on. These considerations demonstrate your understanding of building scalable, performant, reliable, and secure systems. Here are some important design considerations:

Scalability: How will the system handle a growing number of users, data, and traffic? Consider horizontal scaling, load balancing, and partitioning strategies.

Performance: How will the system handle high volumes of concurrent requests? Consider optimizing database queries, caching strategies, content delivery networks (CDNs), and efficient use of resources.

Reliability: How will the system ensure high availability and fault tolerance? Consider redundancy, replication, failover mechanisms, and disaster recovery strategies.

Security: How will the system protect user data, prevent unauthorized access, and mitigate potential vulnerabilities? Consider authentication, authorization, encryption, secure API endpoints, and protection against common attacks like cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection.

Data storage and retrieval: How will user-generated content be stored and retrieved efficiently? Consider database choices, data partitioning, indexing strategies, and caching mechanisms.

Data consistency: How will the system maintain data consistency across different components and replicas? Consider consistency models, distributed transactions, and conflict resolution strategies.

Target Audience:
Systems Design is a complex topic because it involves understanding systems as a whole. Therefore, this book was created mostly for intermediate or senior developers. However, this book can be consumed by developers who are begginers also because we explore a lot of fundamental knowledge that can be learned without prior knowledge. Even if the Systems Design interview is not something a begginer developer will do, it’s good to know their principles.
