Regex ain't so bad!

I used to hate regex because it was hard to get my head around but over time, I got better at it. Now I can get by with basic regular expressions and if you’re struggling too, this video might help.

Your friendly neighbourhood Engineer Man made a video called Regular Expressions – Enough to be Dangerous which shows enough regex to be dangerous.

The techniques in the video aren’t new or difficult to find online but he explains in them in a way that even Richard Feynman would approve of.

To use the regex tool from the video, head to debuggex.com.
