*This Women Who Code DC event is intended to be open exclusively for women; we are trans* friendly.*
Come learn about regular expressions (aka regex), an often-used but little-loved area of programming. When processing text you might not always know what you're looking for, but it probably follows a pattern. That's where regular expressions come in. Regex can be used for validating text inputs or searching and replacing text in files, and once you learn how you'll be surprised the occasions you find to use it.
Our classroom space is limited, so we would appreciate you only RSVP "yes", if you're coming, and update your RSVP if you can no longer attend. No-shows will be tracked, and repeated no-shows will be removed from the attendance list of future classes. Thank you!
