This session will cover Regular Expressions from the basics to the darkest corners of this arcane art. Regular Expressions, at the core, come in handy to achieve validation and text manipulation tasks. In the day-to-day life of a developer, becoming comfortable with them opens up many more use cases. As one of the tortured souls that actually enjoys writing - and reading - regexes, Jordi will share his passion so that you too can see there is no reason to worry.

You are quite convincing, in your plea for me not to fear regular expressions. But, I still do fear them. I think I always will. Thanks for the talk.

Great overview of regex! Well thought through and good points along the way of when to use and when not to use certain aspects of it!

Tons of great info and well presented. I had trouble following at some points due to the fact that the syntax is super alien. This would have been a great candidate for a session during the first day in order to give people some hands on approach.
