Video: Using Regular Expressions with PowerShell

Last Tuesday, guest speaker Timothy Warner presented a session for our user group on “Pattern Match Like a Pro: Using Regular Expressions with Windows PowerShell”.

Many Windows systems administrators are intimidated with regular expressions due to its seemingly strange, “Unixy” syntax. Take heart! By the end of this session, you’ll finally understand how to perform simple and advanced text filtering with RegEx, specifically by leveragine PowerShell’s -match operator and Select-String cmdlet.

The video from that presentation is now available:


The code examples and slide deck that Tim provided can be downloaded from here.
