Fear not, for AI coding is here to help you!
The author presents 24 challenging regex puzzles, their traditional human-made solutions, and the fascinating answers given by popular AI assistants.
Groundbreaking large language model research from OpenAI, Google, Amazon, and others have transformed expectations of machine-generated software. But how do these AI assistants measure up against regular expressions—a workhorse technology for developers used to describe, find, and manipulate patterns in text.
Regular Expression Puzzles and AI Coding Assistants is the story of two competitors. On one side is David Mertz, an expert programmer and the author of the Web's most popular Regex tutorial. On the other are the AI powerhouse coding assistants, GitHub Copilot and OpenAI ChatGPT.
The author presents 24 challenging regex puzzles, their traditional human-made solutions, and the fascinating answers given by popular AI assistants. Alongside these eye-opening puzzles you’ll learn how to write prompts, integrate AI-generated coding suggestions, and interact with the assistant to get the results you want.
"To take meaningful steps toward Augmented Intelligence, we will need to understand both Humans' and Machines' strengths and weaknesses. This is where David's book comes in."
— Koo Ping Shung, Data Science Rex
David Mertz’s book is the perfect starting point for programmers of any experience level who want to understand the capabilities—and the limitations—of exciting new AI coding tools.
