Course Entrance

Hi, my name is Jeffrey Way, and welcome to “Regular Expressions, Up and Running”. This course is tailor-made for you if you know you need to learn regular expressions, but you haven’t gotten around to doing it just yet, or you don’t know how (or when) to use them in your projects. If you have ever looked at a long regular expression and every character is foreign to you, don’t worry. We’ve all been there. Over the course of five chapters, I’m going to show you exactly how to use every single symbol and how to implement them into your PHP projects. Let’s get started in Chapter 1, where we will learn the basics.
