Understanding Distributed Systems

According to Stack Overflow's 2020 developer survey, the best-paid engineering roles require distributed systems expertise. That comes as no surprise as modern applications are distributed systems.

Learning to build distributed systems is hard, especially if they are large scale. It's not that there is a lack of information out there. You can find academic papers, engineering blogs, and even books on the subject. The problem is that the available information is spread out all over the place, and if you were to put it on a spectrum from theory to practice, you would find a lot of material at the two ends, but not much in the middle.

That is why I decided to write a book to teach the fundamentals of distributed systems so that you don’t have to spend countless hours scratching your head to understand how everything fits together. This is the guide I wished existed when I first started out, and it's based on my experience building large distributed systems that scale to millions of requests per second and billions of devices.

You can download a sample of the book at https://understandingdistributed.systems/
