0:00 Welcome back to 100 Days of Python. Wow, you're almost done. It's the third day of the regex 3 days block.
0:09 I hope you're enjoying this and getting a good grasp of writing regular expressions in Python. So in this third day, let's get you some more practice,
0:18 and I have some exercises lined up for you. First of all, we have, on our Code Challenges platform, Bite 2, Regex Fun, where you can solve this problem
0:29 of extracting course times out of a string, getting hashtags and links, and match the first paragraph. Then we have mastering regular expressions
0:42 also as a blog challenge. And if you like to work more in your own environment, I encourage you to do this one because you get
0:49 a branch on the code challenges repo and you can just work on your system. And finally, I mean, those exercise,
0:58 we think are good practice, but of course feel free to get your own data, and parse it, use regular expressions to clean the data, etc.
1:08 It's actually how we got started with code challenges. We came up with this exercise where we saw this JavaScript course and we saw all these timings,
1:18 but there was not a total so the first pilot code challenge was, go filter out these timestamps and calculate what the total course time is.
1:29 It's not necessarily curriculum stuff, but it gets you to practice. And with practice comes mastery. So use any data you want.
1:39 The goal is to use more regular expressions. And don't forget to share your work on Twitter. You can mention the handle @100DaysOfPython.
1:50 Good luck, have fun, and remember: Keep calm and code in Python.
