Learn to Love Regular Expressions

A presentation at Future of Web Apps London in in London, UK by Drew McLellan

Regular Expressions are everywhere, from configuring routing in your web app, to form validation, to server configuration. They’re a tool every developer should master, yet most of us just copy and paste solutions from StackOverflow. If you feel like you ever really understood regular expressions, this is the introduction you need. Next time you need to import content from a legacy platform, or deal with messy data from a badly designed API you’ll have all the tools you need.
