Don’t take our word for it – check out this note sent to us by a learner in this course:

“Interview prep is even more challenging without proper guidance. This course was a real saver because I was asked about every concept that the course discussed. The mock interview was helpful enough to practice your learnings for real-world problems. I was able to ace my system design portion of the interview and got my offer at Amazon.

As a non-CS major student, I struggled to find good resources. The instructor was actually from Amazon and had real interview questions. He focuses on skills that matter in the interview rather than hacky tricks. You will lose nothing on this course because you will grow a lot regardless of the interview result. And… this course will remain as a strong guide what to focus on more.”

Who this course is for:

  • Experienced software engineers or architects preparing for challenging system design interviews at big tech companies.
