Talk at PHPBenelux Conference 2010 (English - UK)

Rating: 4 of 5

Regular expression, you either hate them or you love them, but do you really know how to harness their power ?
Based on the PCRE implementation, this talk will show you how to get the most out of your /^regex(es)?$/, how switches affect your results, how to be less greedy and let’s not forget: when *not* to use regex.

Very nice talk on optimizing regexes and maing people aware on the actual approach of regex use.

The presentation didn't really fill in my expectations, because it had a high college value to it.
For those never used RegEx this was just an optimization session; I expected some more depth in how to get these things in application development collaboration and analyses levels.

But I like the approach of Juliette; being non-conformistic with pencil and whiteboard.

As always Juliette never fails to deliver. This is a no-holds-barred look at RegEx. it is not your typical conference session. You MUST pay attention and it helps if you participate.

Great talk. lots of practical information on writing regexes the right way.
I walked out of the room knowing I was certainly going to use some of those things in future projects.

I love getting bombarded with quicktips in these area's. Very high tempo and maybe not for the starters in regular expressions, but very good.

Juliette was able to take me by surprise with her unconventional or perhaps even 'retro' style of presenting. Though in my opinion this style does not suit all talks, she used it to add the right amount of flavor to her presentation.

Unfortunately this, and the complexity of the matter, also meant I had trouble at times to follow the structure and understand the information provided.

This talk is certainly not for those who are new to RegEx's but for those who have used them it will certainly help you in your future RegExp writing.

Although me and regexes will never become good friends, it's good to know about how to improve the performance of a regex.
I've had a brief introduction on another event, but the full talk was really Illuminating.
