Silent Disco: Understanding Regular Expressions

Our 'Silent Discos' are based on tutorials from the Programming Historian website.

Participants will meet for a brief introduction to the topic, and then you'll work on your skills at your own pace. The facilitator will be available in Teams Chat to reply to any questions that arise during the workshop and help troubleshoot or explain issues.

This session will use advanced find-and-replace capabilities in a word processing application. Without using a general programming language, participants will gain exposure to some aspects of computational thinking, especially pattern matching, that can be immediately helpful to working historians (and others) using word processors and can form the basis for subsequent learning with more general programming environments. 

Those who have booked their place will receive an email with full details and a link to take part in in advance of the live session.
