Does anyone have any recommendations for a "gentle introduction" to regular expressions?

#regex

Follow

@samir

I'm not sure how gentle you're looking for, but regexcrossword.com/ is a good intro and a lot of fun (if your brain is broken in the right ways, anyway :D)

@kensanata @codesections

Thank you both for the suggestion. I've started playing around with it but may have to come back to it once I understand the basics a bit more as it appears they assume you have a bit of a background with regex already, which unfortunately I do not.

I do like the gaming aspect of it so site has been bookmarked!

@codesections @samir regex, and “fun”, in the same sentence?

Your parenthetical is self-referential, yeah? 🤣
