One week from today, on Tuesday 22nd March, the UK PowerShell User Group will host a Live Meeting presentation on Regular Expressions by PowerShell MVP Tome Tanasovski. I make frequent use of Regular Expressions in PowerShell, so Tome's session sounds really interesting:
Regular Expressions have been employed by every serious scripting language for the past 15 years. PowerShell’s adoption and implementation of Regular Expressions has ensured that it is taken seriously by serious scripters. The presentation will explore the history and syntax of regular expressions. It will give a deep dive into the PowerShell cmdlets that use Regular Expressions as well as the .NET native methods that can be invoked using PowerShell. It will give a detailed understanding of the internals of Microsoft’s implementation of Regular Expressions and how it differs from other languages. Real-world scenarios for using regular expressions will be explored.
You'll find all the details to join the meeting on Richard Siddaway's blog, and remember, you don't need to be in the UK to take part, just be interested in the topic at hand.
