There are many ways to frame a deck, However, there is only one right way. If your looking for the strongest, longest lasting deck it all starts with the framing. 
Notching the posts
Most builders and contractors alike simply disregard IRC building code which states that a double rim joist must be sat in a notched 6x6 post and connected with bolts. Most decks have a single rim joist attached to the face of the post with a few bolts. This means the weight of your deck is resting on two little bolts, not the post itself !!
Properly Notched Post
WRONG: Post not notched, weight bearing on bolts only!!
