60 days at expedia India

About to complete 60 days at Expedia, Gurgaon and till now the ride has been a rollercoaster.

I joined Expedia hoping for challenging work, participating in building a good team and workplace full of amazing people. To be frank, everything is as close to reality as I imagined.

The experience is amazing, people are awesome, the new office is great, the parties are crazy, but the most important thing is the freedom to express yourself and asking questions. And people around you listen (even leaders) and have enough patience to make you feel comfortable.

Work-wise finishing user-stories (part of the onboarding process), building a team by interviewing the brightest mind in the industry and ideating about the new ideas to make it a better workplace and best technology platform. It's a great learning opportunity to contribute to one of the fastest-growing company's in the technology and travel industry.

I hope this answers some of your initial questions about joining Expedia.

Looking forward to seeing you onboard \o/.

Write a Java program to read console data using bufferedreader API

BufferedReader is a class which simplifies reading text from a character input stream. It buffers the characters in order to enable efficient reading of text data. The buffer size may be specified, or the default size may be used. The default is large enough for most purposes. In general, each read request made of a Reader causes a corresponding read request to be made of the underlying character or byte stream. It is therefore advisable to wrap a BufferedReader around any Reader whose read() operations may be costly, such as FileReaders and InputStreamReaders. For example, // BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new FileReader("foo.in")); will buffer the input from the specified file. Without buffering, each invocation of read() or readLine() could cause bytes to be read from the file, converted into characters, and then returned, which can be very inefficient. import java.io.BufferedReader; import java.io.IOException; import java.io.InputStream

The following snippet shows how to achieve it: tableColumnLayout.setColumnData(tableColumn, new ColumnWeightData(1)); Explanation of the above line: tableColumnLayout is   instance of  ColumnLayoutData tableColumn is the column on which
