🎉 It's the Detroit Chapter's First Birthday! 🎉

We're going to celebrate in the best way....by practicing JS. Lukas de Conantseznak, a lead developer at Autobooks, will teach us about regular expressions in JavaScript, lead us through some exercises, and answer your questions.

What do I need to know in order to attend this event?

This event is open to all, but having some beginner familiarity with JavaScript will be helpful. To follow along, you will also need an IDE. If you don't have one installed on your computer, you can use a browser based IDE like repl.it.

What are regular expressions?

A regular expression (shortened as regex or regexp) is a sequence of characters that specifies a search pattern. Usually such patterns are used by string-searching algorithms for "find" or "find and replace" operations on strings, or for input validation. It is a technique developed in theoretical computer science and formal language theory. Regular expressions are used in search engines, search and replace dialogs of word processors and text editors, in text processing utilities. Many programming languages provide regex capabilities either built-in or via libraries, as it has uses in many situations.
