As our knowledge and experience with regular expressions grows, we can begin to match more and more generalized items, such as an email address. By coming up with the regex to match an email address, we need to use concepts such as grouping, ranges, repetition, literal characters, and more. This learning activity also expects you to have some knowledge of grep and sort.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
