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.

This presentation was well done. I’m not new to Regex but still picked up some excellent pointers and new understanding. Thank you!
Very approachable and manageable material and friendly and helpful presentation
The presentation had plenty of examples that conveyed meaning well. I learned a lot.
Great class, lots of fun.
I will now resurrect my use of RegEx.
Well prepared, proper English (native speaker), funny at times, tons of information. One thing I learned, to give an example, was that you can make comments in RegEx when using the 'e' flag.
Tons of information. Maybe a little too dense if Regex feels scary to you. But Liam Wiltshire really knows how to keep you interested with a mix of humour and aha moments. I learned 2 or 3 tricks that are really going to come in handy. I also never actually thought about optimizing regex and Liam's approach was great because he really explained how different approaches could radically impact performance. Highly recommended.
