The 8th Annual Regular Expression Day - June 1st, 2015

Published in , Comments (8)

It's been eight years since we started international Regular Expression Day and my love for regular expressions hasn't lost momentum. When you're married to such an awesome piece of technology, there is no "seven-year itch;" the romance just keeps getting more and more intense. Hardly a day goes by where I don't get to use regular expressions for some sort of string parsing, input validation, or control flow negotiation.

NOTE: If you are already completely lost and have no idea what I'm talking about, please checkout my video and slide presentation - Regular Expressions, Extraordinary Power. They will blow your mind and change your world forever.

This year, to celebrate regular expressions, I wanted to juxtapose the timeless beauty of regular expressions against the ever-emerging beauty from Apple. In this case, the Apple Watch. In the same way that Apple has made the "old" new again, regular expressions continue to remain relevant, day after day, year after year. As such, the two go quite well together.

For a chance to win an Apple Watch Sport, post a tweet using the "Tweet This" button below. Each tweet is tagged with a unique identifier (a 6-digit hex value). If you get people to retweet your tweet (using the same identifier), it will increase your chances of winning!

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
