It was really good, as an amateur to Regex it was good to see it explained better than any resource I have found online so far.

Most of the talk was obvious to me - however I didn't know about the named placeholders - obviously $matches[1] is so much better.... *ahem*

It should perhaps have mentioned the problem with $ - in that it can contain a newline - see

Well done. One thing that really stuck to me was the way you can document your regexp by using comments, I had no idea that was possible.

Enjoyable talk, but I felt the examples should have show results of the code a little more than they did.

I know my regexp but thought I'd stick around as iteration always helps - and as GingerDog said - that named placeholder syntax was a surprise so I learned something new too.
