Regular expressions are a powerful tool to help you search, clean, transform, or otherwise mutate and repurpose data – from anything including large data corpora, gene sequence datafiles, bulk econometric data, historical printed documents and more. Long a very specialized tool, regular expressions now appear word-processing and spreadsheet applications.

This sessions aims to provide sufficient knowledge to start handling 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.
