Introduction to Regular Expressions – Digital Scholars Workshop Series

March 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Bridge Room 1001 First Floor Hardiman Research Building


David Kelly

Regular expressions are a powerful tool to help you search, clean, transform, or otherwise mutate and repurpose data – from large text corpora, gene sequence datafiles, to bulk econometric data, to scanned, historical printed documents and everything in-between. Traditionally found in specialised editors and programming languages, regular expressions now appear in many user-tools including word-processing applications and spreadsheets.

This session aims to provide sufficient knowledge and tools to set you on the road to acquiring a valuable new skill and handle many data formatting and transformation problems with greatly improved productivity. Anyone who works or plans to work extensively with data – programmers and non-programmers alike, might find this session useful.
