Conventions for the Design Chapters of the Course

Learn some conventions that will help with the design section.

We'll cover the following

We have made a concerted effort to ensure that all of our lessons are easy to understand. However, before reading through the design portion of the course, we consider it necessary to explain some conventions used in the coming chapters that will make it easy to understand different design decisions.


We have listed each convention briefly below:

  • We assume you’ve read through the course in the order it’s presented in. However, we have tried our best to decouple each of the four design problems. The prerequisite concepts you should be familiar with in order to complete a design problem are hyperlinked within the corresponding design problem lessons.

  • Most of the public-facing APIs use REST architecture. Therefore, our course uses the convention of following the same architecture.
