Event Details

Regular expressions ("regexps") allow you to dissect, analyze, and replace patterns of text. If you're working with text -- and let's be honest, most of us are -- then you have likely heard that regular expressions might make your life easier. But then you took a look at the regexp syntax, and decided that you really had better things to do with your time. In this Webinar, I aim to demonstrate not only that regular expressions can be useful, but that the basics aren't that hard, and that you can start to use them in your day-to-day work almost immediately. Examples will use Python, but the regexps we use should work on many modern languages, including Ruby and JavaScript. There will be many live-coding demonstrations, as well as ample opportunities for Q&A.
