Memphis .Net User Group

The mission of the Memphis .Net User Group is to educate, evangelize and inform the community about the direction in which Microsoft .NET, Microsoft SQL Server, and related technologies and how developers and architects of various, yet intersecting disciplines can start to prepare for what is ahead while serving the community through knowledge sharing and evangelism of current technologies.

Monthly meetings are usually held on the fourth Thursday of the month and attendance is free. Our meeting location currently varies. Meetings start at 6:00 p.m. with pizza and drinks provided by Robert Half Technology, followed by the presentation starting around 6:30 p.m.

Regular Expressions, on the 50th attempt I Finally Got It!  

Regular Expressions have many times defied my attempts at true understanding. Yes, I could get something to work when I really needed to but it was painful and in truth I didn't really understand what was happening. It turns out Regular Expression expressions work like a programming language with some very strange syntax. Once you "get" this, Regular Expressions can play an integral role in your development. In this session, we will look at Regular Expressions from the perspective of typed-language developers. By calling out the "wierdnesses" we can begin to grab on to the benefits this technology provides and add this very useful tool to our technology tool belts.
