June 1st was (Inter)?National Regular Expression day celebrated the world over. Regular Expressions are something I have just a base knowledge of and was on my goals to learn in 2010, so I tried my hand at the contest by Ben Nadel. And through the power of complete randomness, I won.
So, thanks Ben for sending me Mastering Regular Expressions by Jeffrey E.F. Friedl and O'Reilly Media. I am enjoying the book so far and it was a great birthday present as it arrived just on time. I look forward to becoming a RegEx Master.
