Today was the 1st June, and that means it's Regex Day again!
This annual event was started four years ago by Ben Nadel to celebrate this wonderful (yet often misunderstood) technology, and as usual Ben is running a fun regex competition, with prizes, on his blog.
If that's not enough regex goodness for you, here's a couple of projects you should know about.
For CFML developers, there's cfRegex a replacement regex implemenation providing more power and functionality than CFML's native functions, whilst being easier to work with.
Whatever your level of regex skill, both of these tools are definitely worth checking out.
It's 1st June 2010 today, and that means we're celebrating for the third time the annual International Regular Expressions Day.
Ben Nadel kicked off this event two years ago, in order to promote the use of Regex, especially amongst those who might consider them something scary and obscure.
As before, Ben is running a contest, this year's prizes being some O'Reily Regex books and IIS Mod-Rewrite Pro licenses.
Entry to the competition requires writing some code, and the deadline is today, so if you're interested then hurry up and
read Ben's blog entry to find out more.
Happy Regex Day!
Today, 1st June 2008, has been officially decreed as Regular Expressions Day.
And in honour of this event, there are a couple of regex-oriented competitions happening.
Ben Nadel, nominator of this great day, kicked things off with a handful of prizes for the best comments:
June 1st 2008 - National Regular Expression Day!
The deadline for Ben's competition is today - that is, you must post the comment on (or before) RegExp Day, and the winners will be selected tomorrow.
Don't despair if you miss that though, as Steve Levithan also has a regular expression competition running, and the deadline for that is Friday 13th, almost two weeks from now:
Regex Day Contest
Happy RegEx Day!
