Python Regular Expressions in Python Introduction to Regular Expressions Compiling and Loops

Great course. Very informative. Was replacing matches with sub or subn covered?

It may have been covered but I don't recall. It certainly is an indispensable component to working with regular expressions. If it hasn't been covered, will there be a continuation course on Python's regex implementation at some point in the future? Thank you.

.sub() and .split() are both mentioned in the email that you get for completing the badge.

As for a future regex course, I don't know if there'll be one. There isn't much to cover, that wasn't covered in this one, that is still useful to most developers.

I wasn't aware that we received emails upon completing badges. I might have opted out in my settings. Do most of them contain extra useful info like you mentioned for this course?
