[Part 1/4] 🌐 Senior Backend Architecture Interview With a Senior Software Engineer

About Me: I've been a professional web developer for just over 10 years now. I'm currently the lead web development instructor at Better Coding Academy, and as part of what I do, I post videos on our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/BetterCodingAcademy.

A second video interview series, this time focusing on backend architecture! In the following video series I'm interviewed by a senior software engineer from one of Australia's largest software companies. We go through a variety of architectural and data modelling concepts as I attempt to tackle the problem for the first time. I hope you enjoy!

Happy coding!

Definitely an interesting video πŸ‘. In the discussion about the API interface, I'd assume it's important to mention trade-offs. So in those 3 examples (web, mobile, bot using an API), would GraphQL be the best choice for all use cases? Perhaps not.

Also some feedback on the discussion topics. I'd love to see more patterns (e.g. BFF for twitter) & non-funtional requirements (e.g. observability and scalability) being discussed, instead of specific tools. Part 1 was amazing though and I really enjoyed it πŸ™‚.

Great content! Looking forward for moreπŸ‘
