What this course is?
This course is universal, meaning that the regular expression material you learn here will be applicable in most if not all regular expression engines.
Regular expressions are also called Regex, Regexp or Regexes, so we will be probably be using this vocabulary since it's easier to pronounce and is what we commonly use in the programming community.
Who this course is for?
New developers that want to learn regular expressions.
Frustrated developers who had issues learning it before.
Any developer who is serious about their programming career.
Some information about the course structure!
We will start slow with the most basic regular expression functionality, like searching and matching, learning what each of the symbols do and how to use them to do what we need.
After we learn the most basic things, we will start with more complex operations and real worlds solutions. I always try keep the lectures short so that the material is easy to digest.
At the end of every section we are going to have some practice code so that we can re-enforce everything for that section.
See you inside, let's do this!

Edwin has a way of breaking the material down to be as easy to learn as possible. Thoroughly enjoyed this course, regular expressions don't seem so scary anymore!
wanted to get into Regex and with Edwin it was a great start, but because i am a rookie it would have been with some more examples and exercises.
Excellent course! I went into regex with 0 experience and can now implement patterns for data validation and data extraction.
This is exactly what I was looking for. An introduction and great reference for Regular expressions.
Could have been better if Linux was used as platform With a file an example and inside file editor like vi how to use regex.
He goes though several examples for each case starting simple and adding more little by little. I appreciate the examples and the resources for all the possible symbols that can be used.
Does not cover basics for learning Regex, just briefly goes over symbols and then says "As you can see this is SO EASY" and doesn't allow anytime for actual learning.
Good content, sometimes the instructor is just saying "it does this" or "see what this does"? And it's not completely obvious what he means.
I use R in my job. I occasionally need to do some simple regex substitution in data preparation. I've seen R specific tutorials. R specific tutorials focus on the r regex functions but I wanted a more general explanation of regex. This course is exactly what I needed. Definitely 5 stars! I enjoyed the real-world, applied, conversational tone of the lectures.
I expected this course to have something about pretty URLs to pickup where it left in the PHP-beginner-CMS master course
This course could really use practice problems at the end of each section to validate the topics taught.
The training is really pleasant to follow, and the instructor does a great job in giving examples to make even the trickiest parts easy to understand. Thank you, this was a game changer to me!
This course was very insightful and the instructor covered the subject very well. I like that he left his errors in there as it allowed us to observe the thought process behind correcting errors. Overall, I definitely recommend this course.
Great info and helped explain alot. Of course if you don't practice tho you still won't be a master with just watching so I'm off to work playing around with these.
He does a good job of explaining RegEx from the ground up, not assuming much prior knowledge. I've learned a lot! The biggest negative is his speaking. He, self-admittedly, struggles a bit with English. It's not horrible by any means, but his grammar mistakes and verbal backtracking cause me a little confusion sometimes. Not hating at all. I speak a foreign language imperfectly, so I know the struggle. But it's worth pointing out, as it does hinder understanding a bit. Highly recommend watching these lessons with a RegEx testing tool open to follow along with him.
