The 9th Annual Regular Expression Day - June 1st, 2016

By Ben Nadel on

Yesterday, I used a Regular Expression to validate and parse dynamic key bindings in Angular 2. And, it was just as exciting yesterday as it was a decade ago when I first learned what a Regular Expression was. That's because Regular Expressions are beautiful. And elegant. And timeless. And we'll keep celebrating them for as long as it takes to spread the word.

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, I'm keeping it simple - life has been hectic! I'm giving away five $100 gift cards to All you have to do is retweet the following tweet for a chance to win. Winners will be selected on June 2.


Conan, what is best in life? To pattern match your problems, to inspect the captured groups, and to hear the lamentations of the women!
