Introduction to Regular Expressions

$175.00

Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs

In this introductory course we’ll cover common Regular Expression syntax and provide examples that will work in several regular expression implementations. You will learn to write regular expressions that will be usable for a wide variety of tasks in a wide variety of tools and scenarios. We will use a freely available web tool to practice writing expressions, but if you have a specific regular expression needs (e.g. library applications and tools) we will take some time to explore how to write regular expressions for those scenarios as well.

Course Description

Regular Expressions have a wide range of library applications, from coding, text and metadata processing to basic search and query processing.

There are various regular expression syntaxes (roughly 250 and counting), all quite similar but with minor idiosyncrasies that can can be confusing depending on what tool or what programming language you might be using for a given task.

In this introductory course we’ll cover common Regular Expression syntax and provide examples that will work in several regular expression implementations. You will learn to write regular expressions that will be usable for a wide variety of tasks in a wide variety of tools and scenarios. We will use a freely available web tool to practice writing expressions, but if you have a specific regular expression needs (e.g. library applications and tools) we will take some time to explore how to write regular expressions for those scenarios as well.

This course complements our Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems.
