5 Star – Regex can be a tricky beast to tame, but this course certainly helps one to get to grips with it. The course goes in to great depth and has plenty of good examples to explore. I was particularly interested in the Python and PowerShell sections, however the entire course is very informative. – Bryan Smith

5 Star – Regex annoyed me. Then I found Paul’s course. Well worth the money and time invested. The reason it’s worth it isn’t because of the content, no the content is actually tedious and annoying… it’s worth it because of how he positions the content, walks you through it and explains it in an INTUITIVE way. If more people taught the way Paul does, we’d be a smarter planet. Also the jokes are on ‘a neighborhood of dads’ level. – Eugenio Parages
