Courtesy of my new coworker Sagar, I’ve started using Rubular on the regular for all my regular expressions. It’s really handy to be able to see what your matches are in advance, and having the cheatsheet at the bottom has made it way easy for me to construct regexes of things I would’ve had tons of trouble with before. PLUS there’s even helpful little suggestions when your regex is broken, about things to escape and what not! SO GOOD, and on top of all that website is very well designed. Form AND functionality! :D
How do you pronounce regex anyway? reh-jex? reg-ex? I’ve been using the ‘j’ version, but it sounds awkward.
This probably marks the first of many computer-science related posts I’ll be making. Working at Sharecare as a QA engineer has got me really excited about a bunch of the new stuff I’m learning.
