Regular expressions are easily one of the (initially) scariest aspects of programming. Particularly at the beginning, when you haven’t learned a single symbol, a large regular expression chunk can serve to be an incredibly intimidating force.
However, once you dig in and learn a handful of the symbols and sequences, you'll quickly find that it’s not so bad. Truly learning regular expressions was one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made in my development career. I’d like to pass this learning on to you in my brand new Tuts+ Premium course, Regular Expressions: Up and Running."
As always, we start at the beginning, and slowly work our way up to more advanced regular expression patterns and techniques. So, if they currently look like Egyptian hieroglyphs to you, no worries, they did for me too! When you're finished with this course, though, you'll have a solid grasp of the language, and a fantastic new tool to use in your projects.
The recently re-launched Tuts+ Premium is a service that provides top-tier training in a variety of creative fields. Whether you prefer books, visual training, or in depth tutorials, we have you covered. While we unfortunately can't afford to provide the service for free, it's only $19 a month - less than you'd spend on dinner.
I hope you'll consider checking it out! In addition to learning a huge variety of new skills, it's also a fantastic way to say thank you to Nettuts+.
