Regex and text parsing

Our second meetup fellow Rubyists! We will be digging into some Regex and different methods for parsing text. We will primarily discuss how Regex works in Ruby and differences between other languages. We will also have a time at the beginning of the meeting where members can talk about current projects they are working on and how they are solving problems. We will limit this to 1/2 hour. At the end we will discuss what open source project or gem we may want to contribute to as a group and what the next meetup will be about. Plan on being there for 2 hours. See everyone then.

    I am going to be doing a short intro to the basics of Regex, plus some handy tools to help.

    Hey guys,

    Brent and I have shared a project on the Bako Ruby GitHub org at which demonstrates how to parse nested JSON objects in a variety of programming languages and web frameworks (including Ruby on Rails, of course). If anyone's interested, we'd be up going over these examples tonight.

    I have been reading Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture and can talk about some of the patterns. This could be a continuing talk where we spend a few minutes talking about the different patterns each meeting.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
