  • Java 11 knowledge – in and out
  • Vert.x or Spring 5 based Reactive programming
  • Couchbase is an added advantage
  • Why using Postgres and not MariaDB/MySQL (one reason could be enterprise unavailability)

  • Clean code principle
  • KISS (Keep it simple and stupid) – why it can be a choice while designing a complex system
  • Debugging do’s and don’ts
  • SOLID principle – specially Liskov’s substitution principle – How it can be a game changer
