RegEx is scary. At least, if you ask Google, that's what you might think (257,000). And slow (441,000). In fact, regular expressions are neither of these, and indeed are a powerful tool in your utility belt.
In "RegEx Is Your Friend", Liam aims to provide some real-world usable examples of how RegEx can be used in a way that's fast, explaining how the different parts of regular expressions work and execute to make it understandable for all.
No matter if you don't know your '$' from your '^', you are not sure when to use RegEx (and when not to), or you just need to find a way to make your RegEx run faster, there will be useful help and tips for everyone.
