Beneath The Surface: Harnessing the True Power of Regular Expressions in Ruby

A session at RubyConf 2013

Friday 8th November, 2013

5:10pm to 6:00pm (EST)

Many of us approach regular expressions with a certain fear and trepidation, using them only when absolutely necessary. We can get by when we need to use them, but we hesitate to dive any deeper into their cryptic world. Ruby has so much more to offer us. This talk showcases the incredible power of Ruby and the Onigmo regex library Ruby runs on. It takes you on a journey beneath the surface, exploring the beauty, elegance, and power of regular expressions. You will discover the flexible, dynamic, and eloquent ways to harness this beauty and power in your own code.
