Nice Regex teaching site and Free Online Courses/Classes/Lectures

Recommended Posts

If you want to learn Regular Expressions abbreviated Regex or Regexp or in SCAR PregMatch and how they are used in general (Not specific to SCAR for SCAR check out here) this website is nice at teaching and has some history/applications mentioned for programming languages: http://www.regular-expressions.info/


For free online courses/classes/lectures:

Recently I've been on google looking for nice websites for learning using primarily lectures or videos as the medium. The videos must have some one talking in the background. And to my surprise there is a lot online that are better then the ones that are just "recorded" straight from the classroom or environment usually in bad quality/not hd. These ones I'm about to list use powerpoints or other methods and most likely have people talking and teaching the material. They will do both sometimes.


Looks to be possibly best and most aggregated:



http://www.coursera.org - Also confirmed u can download individually each lectures




Well some websites I did find but I wasn't extremely impressed with compared to those in some of the website/design/videos, but still good:






There's more but those were the best I could find so far. I really enjoyed learning regular expressions from that above mentioned website, and I learned that it was a math concept from some of the online courses from those websites above.


I've been taking this online compiler class, very interesting stuff. I had no idea on some of the language analysis till now. Like "Lexical" analysis, and regular expression programming, etc. Here is the link to that course: https://www.coursera.org/course/compilers


I also highly recommend this design course, gave me some good ideas: https://www.coursera.org/course/design

Thanks Jani! Found some more nice pages on that regex website, it has online table references too.


And here is what is mentioned about Delphi (XE) and regex - http://www.regular-expressions.info/delphi.html

and the guy authored this book on regex - http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1449319432/jgsbookselection


Some interesting info about Open Source PCRE, a regex library:


PCRE: The open source PCRE library. The feature set described here is available in PCRE 5.x and 6.x. PCRE is the regex engine used by the TPerlRegEx Delphi component and the RegularExrpessions and RegularExpressionsCore units in Delphi XE and C++Builder XE.


I never knew regex could be so extensive, and in depth.
