Upcoming fb interview prep

1) System Design: probably my biggest blind spot. I have years of experience and confident in designing scalable systems. But the open ended nature of the interview worries me.
- Is there any resource to prep for System Design (leetcode style)
- Typically interviewers are looking to hear a few specific things when they ask a system design Q. What are some of the techniques to extract that info out of the interviewers?

2) Coding: Yes I know very well about leetcode and solving several problems a day. But is there good resources in one place to learn common techniques? Leetcode almost feels like the exercise section when a lesson finishes :-)

3) Also what do FB interviewers prioritize more between accuracy/bug free in different corner condition, robust algorithm, speed of solving etc

    The most important part of a sys design interview is "just do it" -- just dove in, lead the convo and act like you know what you're talking about. If you don't know, it doesn't matter because you're not expected to! Show leadership skills here.
