Full of Opportunities to Learn by Doing in Order to Unlock the Power of Regular Expressions in Your Code

Regular expressions can help you more easily solve programming problems. They are an important tool in your coding toolbox. If you have dabbled with regular expressions or not even used them before, this course is for you. You will learn the syntax and participate in numerous examples and exercise to help you integrate regular expressions into your JavaScript coding.

In Mastering Regular Expressions in JavaScript we focus on two main goals: Helping you learn regular expressions and how to construct them, and teaching you the powerful ways regular expressions can be used in JavaScript. If you work in the JavaScript language, this course will be most useful, but even if you work in another language you can use this course to learn about regular expressions as the syntax applies to many programming languages.

This course contains 9 sections, 55 different lectures, over 5 hours of video tutorials, 5 exercises, 5 quizzes and 10 application lectures that will make sure you have what you need to use regular expressions in your JavaScript coding work.

If you are ready to master regular expressions, this course is for you!
