A nice intro and refresher to regular expressions, as well as teaching few regex modifiers that I didn't know of.

- more info on lower level details
- eventually, more interactivity (animations, maybe?)

Excellent talk, which has made RegExes less terrifying for me. They still look confusing as hell, but at least now I have the tools to figure it out.

Learned some useful new tricks with regexp (such as ? in a context after a repetition + or * to eliminate greediness), and a few gotchas on performance, that should certainly improve my own pitiful efforts with this arcane science.

But perhaps trying to squeeze too much information into too tight a timeframe, could have been a 3-hr conference tutorial session given how much was squeezed in

Really appreciated the talk, it was just too fast for me to keep up with it, still being a regex noob - I think Jordi had expected more time than he had. Good to see lots of examples of what can be done, I can hunt down in reference docs in the future. Thanks Jordi!

Not only very educational, but also It's been great fun (just check out the first slide, lol).
