Why System Design?

System Design is the systematic approach that covers a wide range of engineering concepts and principles for designing scalable systems that are modular, reusable, and extensible.
Low-Level Design is the process of designing software components, interfaces, and modules of systems in a modular, reusable, extensible manner to meet the current/ future needs of any organization. High-Level Design digs into depth of all related variables, including architecture, required hardware/software components, how data travels and is stored throughout the system, and how caching is done to optimize the system for fast response times and reduced costs, etc. This includes choosing what kind of database to use, like Cassandra or MySQL or something else, and making choices like SQL vs. NoSQL.
A software engineer who understands both High Level and Low Level Design performs better. It enables an engineer to make architectural decisions to make the software system efficient and scalable while saving an organization's cost. It allows one to distinguish between available databases, e.g., MySQL, PostgreSQL, etc. It also enables one to find the best tool to solve a particular engineering challenge, with tools like Messaging Queues, Load Balancers, etc.
System Design will:
  • Enhance the quality of software systems developed by engineers
  • Save long-term engineers costs for a company
  • Make software systems able to handle changing product requirements and also handle large scale
  • To become a jack of systems design, you need to take into account the following when building a software system:
  • Understand the product requirements (current as well as future) and edge cases very well
  • Create and document software and System Design, which includes Class Diagrams, Schema Diagrams, Architectural High-Level Diagrams
  • Understand the pros and cons of every software system like Databases, Caches, etc., and when to use them
  • Key Highlights of the System Design Module in the Scaler Academy Program

    Become an expert at System Design with Scaler Academy. A necessary skill for any top software engineer, enable yourself to learn these important concepts with ease and swiftness.

    Read the reviews by Scaler Alumni on how Scaler Academy Program has helped become solid certified System Design Engineer
    I joined Scaler Academy to upskill myself for System Design and DSA. The way the curriculum was designed & the way we were engaged in the course is highly commendable. Before joining, the number of problems I solved was far too less. But, after joining Scaler I started solving around 350+ problems and this would have not been possible without the help of the instructors & TA's. A major shoutout to my mentor, he was so approachable that I didn't shy away from discussing if any problem came up. Assistance from Scaler's Talent Acquisition Team was highly helpful which made the interview process smooth and hassle-free.
    I enrolled in the six-month-long course, which was simply AWESOME. I appreciate the effort of Scaler team (Instructors, TA, Mentors, Recruiters). All of them helped me in boosting my confidence, skills & knowledge. I learned System Design, DS/Algo and other core subjects and the most important thing was I gained the confidence I needed to face any interview. Thankful to the Scaler organization for bringing such a learning platform into existence. Special thanks to my mentor who always encouraged & supported me and my recruiter for providing all the great opportunities & for being so supportive during the interview processes.
    Thanks to Scaler Academy, I am super excited and thrilled to share that I will be joining Brick&Bolt as a Software Developer. This has been possible as Scaler helped me upskill and improve my knowledge of DS Algorithm, System Design, and not forgetting the weekly lectures & daily assignments that helped me understand the concepts in a far better way. Thanks to Scaler team for creating this learning platform. Special thanks to all the mentors for teaching the DS concepts in-depth and the recruiters for guiding me throughout the interview process.
    I would love to thank Scaler Academy for improving my learning curve & skills in DS and System Design. The curriculum provided me with the structure I was looking for and that strengthened me in various aspects. Really very grateful to all the Scaler instructors for their guidance & support. Special thanks to the recruiter team who helped me through the onboarding process and also to all the amazing mentors.
    Thanks to Scaler Academy, I am excited to share with you that I will be joining Nurture.farm as a Software Engineer. This has been possible as Scaler helped me upskill and improve my knowledge of DSA and System Design. The weekly lectures along with the assignments helped me in understanding the concepts to the core. I would like to thank the team for providing such a great learning platform that Scaler is. Special thanks to the recruiters for guiding me through the entire interview process.
