Regular Expressions II

January 24 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Modern Languages Building (MLB), Room 2001A

Regular expressions are perfectly suited for people who like puzzles. Regular expressions are a sequence of characters used to define a search pattern. They are commonly used to do “find” and “find and replace” string operations. They are also used to validate strings like phone numbers, passwords, etc. in data entry. Regular expression capabilities can be found in a variety of programming languages and software like ArcGIS, Java, Javascript, Matlab, Perl, PHP, Python, R, Visual Basic, etc. and some text editors. This workshop will cover more advanced topics like captured groups, backreferences and assertions, as well as practical data problems. The workshop will consist of hands-on example problems. Basic understanding of regular expressions is required. You should be able to understand expressions like “\w{3,}-\d{1,2}-\d{4}“ and “des+e?rt”. The tutorials will be conducted using Python. A basic programming background is helpful but not required for this workshop.
