Just a bit too quick on some tricky and less known parts (backtracking/lookahead) but a great intro to the basics and tasting of the more advanced features

Teaching regex in one hour was always going to be an ambitious task, but I was happy to learn many new tricks.

Explaining regexes is pretty hard, in an hour even worst. The talk was indeed very nice and started from the basics and arriving to pretty advanced stuff.

A very good talk, but I still think there are some reasons to worry. :)

I learned at least four new things and the visualisations worked really well

I learned a couple of things I didn't know about regexes, but still didn't understand the most difficult concepts like lookahead... I would have preferred less time on the basics and more on difficult concepts.

Well, very interesting but...I'm still a little bit worried about regex!

I literally falled in love with this talk: I'm neither an expert nor a newbie and I found that this talk (1 hr.) started from very basic concepts, passing through less familiar "rules", arriving to very advanced concepts was really interesting and covered pretty much everything (that is possibile to cover in 1 hr.).
The good thing here was that every type of regex-knower could have been interested.
Final "visual part" was really awesome and helps me a lot to deeply understand what's going on when a regex is evaluated!

I'm not surprised about this: Jordi is one of the best out there!

Very interesting and well structured, I loved how Jordi presented one slide after the other in ascending order of "trickiness" without ever being too overwhelming.

I learned quite a bit of tricks in this talk, and really enjoyed how the speaker makes it easy to follow him even when explaining some tricky details

Good intro, but i would discover more "dark corners" of regexp.
