Regular Expressions in SSMS in 5 Minutes or Less

This Lightning Talk will cover regular expressions in SQL Server Management Studio and demonstrate how incredibly helpful they can be. If you've banged your head trying to use them, or noticed them in the Find/Replace window but never tried them, or just heard all the fuss about them but ignored it, this session is for you! Examples will cover very simple transformations, as well as some more advanced options that will really show off the power of regular expressions.

    Rob Volk is a database administrator in the Atlanta, Georgia area since 2001, having worked in the wireless telecom, utility billing, and credit card processing industries.  He started using SQL Server with version 6.5 and is very glad to have upgraded since then. He has presented at several SQL Saturdays and user groups in the US, and looks forward to his American jokes falling flat with the UK audience, which may prompt a poor imitation of The Parrot Sketch. In his spare time he accomplishes more than he does on the job, just don't tell his boss.
