This was a great talk about regexes. I have had a little experience with them, but the review was excellent. Thanks Sandy!

Awesome and in-depth enough talk. Bravo!

Regex has been big and scary until I sat through this talk. "Don't Fear the Regex" is an apt title and description for this talk. Sandy does a great job of slowly introducing the learner to some basics of Regex and building upon that to take us to a place where, although we are not experts, we are in a comfortable place to experiment with Regex.

I felt comfortable enough with Regex in PHP after this talk that I was able to use it on the job for a recent ticket without having to search Stack Overflow first. Thanks, Sandy!
