| ||Ask HN: How to learn about distributed systems when not possible at work?|

I work for a startup, and worked for many before, and all of them are with the monolithic, mid-sized code bases that do great just with a conventional stack (2 or 3 big servers and simple rerouting).
My question is: How do people learn about distributed systems if never given the chance in a professional setting? I am sure there is a book or two to go over, but would that give me the same skill-set that would allow me to convince a company asking for experience with distributed systems to hire me?
