Regular Expressions, on the 50th attempt I Finally Got It!

Regular Expressions have many times defied my attempts at true understanding. Yes, I could get something to work when I really needed to but it was painful and in truth I didn't really understand what was happening. It turns out Regular Expression expressions work like a programming language with some very strange syntax. Once you "get" this, Regular Expressions can play an integral role in your development. In this session, we will look at Regular Expressions from the perspective of typed-language developers. By calling out the "wierdnesses" we can begin to grab on to the benefits this technology provides and add this very useful tool to our technology toolbelts.
