Editing Tons of Text? RegEx to the Rescue!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you face a daunting editing task, possibly editing a few lines in hundreds or thousands of files? Do you want to update the value for a property in multiple files? Regular expressions (RegEx) can help. Regular expressions are powerful search patterns that exceed what is possible with a basic search. In this session, you will learn common patterns that dramatically decrease the time spent on tedious text maintenance tasks. If you wished for a smarter find and replace or do repetitive text editing for days or weeks, then this presentation is for you.

If you're working on a project with a lot of repetitive, manual tasks, let's talk about tools and techniques you can leverage to efficiently get the job done. I love talking about about regular expressions, SOAP and REST APIs, code samples, modifying text outputs, and web analytics.
