商品描述

The system design interview can be the hardest part of the software engineering hiring process. This practical book gives you the insights, skills, and practice you need to ace the toughest system design interview questions and land the job and salary you want.

In Acing the System Design Interview you will master a structured and organized approach to present system design ideas like:

- Scaling databases to support heavy traffic - Distributed transactions techniques to ensure data consistency - Services for functional partitioning such as API gateway, service mesh, and metadata - Common API paradigms including REST, RPC, and GraphQL - Caching strategies, including their tradeoffs - Logging, monitoring, and alerting concepts that are critical in any system design

The system design interview is one of the hardest challenges you'll face in the software engineering hiring process. Their open-ended nature often makes nailing this interview more art than science--and notoriously difficult to prepare for. Never fear! In Acing the System Design Interview, Zhiyong Tan reveals his unique system design interview techniques that have earned him job offers from Amazon, Apple, PayPal, and Uber. The book goes well beyond typical soft skills. You'll dive deep into the common technical topics that arise during interviews, learning how to apply them to mentally perfect different kinds of systems.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the technology

Any senior role in software engineering will include system design interviews in the hiring process. Built around open-ended questions with no standard answer, these interviews test how well you understand the design of complex systems. You'll need to demonstrate that you can balance tradeoffs to design a system that both meets current requirements and is flexible to future modifications and extensions-all in a 50 minute interview!

About the book

Acing the System Design Interview teaches you how to effectively demonstrate your system design expertise in an interview environment. In this in-depth guide, author Zhiyong Tan shares what he's learned on both sides of the interview table. The book's serious technical overviews cover everything there is to know about system design--from the frameworks for functional partitioning, to different API paradigms.

You'll learn how to quickly assess a question, identify an advantageous approach, and then clearly articulate it to an interviewer. A structured approach to preparing for your interview, handy note-taking techniques, and self-evaluation templates help you prep and assess how you did, and improve your future performance. Along the way, you'll also learn appropriate questions to ask your interviewer and methods to take good interview notes.

About the reader

For software engineers, software architects, and engineering managers looking to advance their careers.

在《Acing the System Design Interview》中,您將掌握一種結構化和有組織的方法,以呈現系統設計思想,例如:
- 擴展數據庫以支持高流量
- 分散式事務技術以確保數據一致性
- 用於功能分割的服務,如API網關、服務網格和元數據
- 包括REST、RPC和GraphQL在內的常見API範式
- 緩存策略及其權衡
- 在任何系統設計中都至關重要的日誌記錄、監控和警報概念

系統設計面試是軟體工程招聘過程中最困難的挑戰之一。由於其開放性,這種面試往往更多是藝術而非科學,因此準備起來非常困難。不用擔心!在《Acing the System Design Interview》中,譚志勇揭示了他獨特的系統設計面試技巧,這些技巧使他獲得了亞馬遜、蘋果、PayPal和Uber的工作機會。這本書不僅僅涵蓋了典型的軟技能,還深入探討了面試中常見的技術主題,教您如何將它們應用於不同類型的系統。

購買印刷版書籍還包括Manning Publications提供的PDF、Kindle和ePub格式的免費電子書。

關於技術:
軟體工程的高級職位都會在招聘過程中進行系統設計面試。這些面試以沒有標準答案的開放性問題為基礎,測試您對複雜系統設計的理解程度。您需要展示您能夠在50分鐘的面試中平衡權衡,設計一個既滿足當前需求又靈活應對未來修改和擴展的系統。

關於本書:
《Acing the System Design Interview》教您如何在面試環境中有效展示您的系統設計專業知識。在這本深入指南中,作者譚志勇分享了他在面試桌兩側所學到的知識。本書嚴肅的技術概述涵蓋了關於系統設計的所有知識,從功能分割的框架到不同的API範式。

您將學習如何快速評估問題,確定一種有利的方法,並清晰地向面試官表達。結構化的面試準備方法、方便的筆記技巧和自我評估模板將幫助您準備並評估自己的表現,並提高未來的表現。在此過程中,您還將學習向面試官提問的適當問題和記錄良好面試筆記的方法。

關於讀者:
適合軟體工程師、軟體架構師和工程經理,希望提升自己的職業生涯。

關於作者:
譚志勇是PayPal的經理。之前,他曾在Uber擔任高級全棧工程師,在小型初創公司擔任數據工程師,在Teradata擔任軟體工程師。多年來,他在許多系統設計面試中都有過面試官和應聘者的經驗。譚志勇還收到了亞馬遜、蘋果和字節跳動/TikTok等知名公司的工作機會。
