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. "RegEx Is Your Friend" will 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.

Great speaker and a great introduction to the topic!

A great introduction to regex and some great specific examples.
I expect to be referring back to the slides often.

I consider myself an intermediate regex user and this was an ideal mix of familiar and new for me.

I think should be mentioned at the start as the place to follow along and try examples during the talk.

This talk took a complicated and confusing topic and made it relatable.
