Webcast: The Best of Fluent: /Reg(exp){2}lained/: Demystifying Regular Expressions
April 10, 2013
In this talk, we'll start with the basics and progressively enhance your knowledge until you're coding regular expressions like a champ. Everything will be demonstrated live with visual examples that ensure maximum comprehension.

"While it's usually a exaggeration to claim that a work contains 'something for every web developer', the statement is completely true of 'CSS Secrets': while it never loses its focus on writing great CSS, the book imparts great lessons on accessibility, design, UX principles, writing DRY code, HTML5 APIs, and clever uses of JavaScript along the way. I would recommend it for everyone experienced in front-end development, without reservation."
