For technical and non-technical people alike, Regular Expressions (regex) are a powerful pattern matching tool you can use to supercharge find-and-replace, everywhere from Google Docs to a codebase. You can use it to find any email address, extract dates, check password strength and so much more. If you work with any type of text, either professionally, or as a hobby, learning Regex can make you more productive. At this talk, you’ll: earn a ribbon by completing a regex crossword puzzle; create a custom regex from scratch; extract email addresses on a webpage using a tool the speaker built; and learn how to use Regex in Google Docs, Chrome, VS Code and on the command line.
