Jamie Zawinski once said “Some people, when confronted with a problem, think “I know, I'll use regular expressions.” Now they have two problems.“. Many consider regular expressions to be indecipherable, but the truth is that every programmer should consider regular expressions an integral part of their toolkit. From the command line to your favorite text editor, from parsing user input to scraping HTML pages - once you know regular expressions you will find a use for them in almost every programming context.
In this session we will attempt to unriddle the mystery that regular expressions pose. We will start at the basics and work our way towards more complex expressions.
