NYC Meeting - 12/10/2012 - Tome Tanasovski - Regular Expressions
By popular demand, Tome (MVP and author of the PowerShell Bible) will be presenting the regular expression talk he gave to us back in 2010. This is a great opportunity to see, learn, and understand regular expressions.
Regular Expressions have been employed by every serious scripting language for the past 15 years. PowerShell’s adoption and implementation of Regular Expressions has ensured that it is taken seriously by serious scripters. The presentation will explore the history and syntax of regular expressions. It will give a deep dive into the PowerShell cmdlets that use Regular Expressions as well as the .NET native methods that can be invoked using PowerShell. It will give a detailed understanding of the internals of Microsoft’s implementation of Regular Expressions and how it differs from other languages. Real-world scenarios for using regular expressions will be explored.
