Distilled to its simplest form, engineers solve problems largely by manipulating text: writing code (that often writes other code), querying or transforming data, validating input, filtering output, and so forth. As such, text manipulation is a critical skill that demands our proficiency. You may have heard that regular expressions can be used to do this, but know little else about them besides their resemblance to what happens when a cat finds your keyboard, or you may be completely unfamiliar with them. Regardless of your current knowledge level, come see them be demystified and take the next step on your journey to becoming a master text manipulator.
