In this Python Lab we will learn about Regular Expressions and use Python's re module (https://docs.python.org/3/library/re.html) to work with Regex (with examples).
A Regular Expression (RegEx) is a sequence of characters that defines a search pattern. A pattern defined using RegEx can be used to match against a string. Regexes are useful in a wide variety of text processing tasks, and more generally string processing. Common applications of RegEx include data validation, data scraping, data wrangling, simple parsing.
The slides and codes used in the lab are here https://github.com/nt03/Regex_WWC_DC. Check out the WWCDC Python Community Github here: https://github.com/womenwhocodedc/python-community
The lab will be a beginner level introduction to RegEx. Some coding experience will be helpful but the aim is to understand the RegEx logic so feel free to come even if you have no previous coding experience.
Please RSVP only if you will be attending. Your name will be given to the building attendant to let you up. Also, keep your RSVP up-to-date because classroom space is limited. Thank you!]
