Regular Expressions: Up and Running

with

In this course, we’re going to finally tackle those incredibly confusing regular expressions. Do they baffle you? Do they look like Egyptian hieroglyphs? No worries; I’m going to teach you both how to decode these symbols, and how to use them in your every day projects… from scratch!

Learning how to properly use regular expressions is one of the best things I’ve ever done in my development career. I hope to pass a bit of my learning on to you. So let’s go!
