8 Steps to acing your next system design interview

Hacker Earth Developers Blog

System design can be a huge leap forward in your career both in terms of money and satisfaction you get from your job. But if your previous job was focused on working closely on one of the components of a system, it can be hard to switch to high-level thinking. Imagine switching from roofing to architectural design. Instead of knowing the ins and outs of making one component, you need to develop a system of components that work well together.

Police Reform and Systems Design in 5 Clear Points

Scott Berkun

Wilson, Chairman of the National Association of Black Law Enforcement Officers, has even stated, “The [police] system was designed to keep poor people under control” reflecting how even today the disturbing roots of policing in America ( slave patrols in the south , protecting the wealthy , warrior vs. guardian culture ) retain their influence.

Model-based Systems Design

The Programmer's Paradox

Start with some data that you want the system to capture. How many of these values will the system store? For the lifetime of some systems, the initial data frequency will differ quite a bit from the actual real-world data frequency. During implementation, it may not make sense for the initial version of the system to treat the subparts as a separate entity, but for data modeling, it should always be treated as such. It is the same process as extending the system.

The software engineering rule of 3

Erik Bernhardsson

But care has to be taken to distinguish between code duplication that’s incidental versus code duplication that’s systemic. The same reasoning applies to system design but with a very different conclusion. When you build a new system from scratch, and you have no idea about how it’s eventually going to be used, don’t get too attached to assumptions. I was reminded of this when we built an email ingestion system at Better.
