    Don't give up. I was there. Like 2010. I had no idea how regex worked. I just copied them from SO. I then got coworkers to explain them to me. (If you don't have coworkers, have a look at regex101.com it explains what your entered regex does.
    It also helps if you understand the concept of a FSM, to understand regex.

    I'm not claming, I know everything about regex and I "discover" new stuff all the time. But I reached a level, where I can just write a regex without having a cheat sheet open.

    Took me a few years but I eventually made it and so can you!

    had to search for that pic. That gem was in the official Facebook PHP SDK. If you ever feel like you completly understand regex, takd a good look at it.

    Edit: found that on 10.05.2016 (or if you prefere it this way: 2016-05-10)

    Try out regexcrossword.com, it's such a cool concept. Although it might not help that much with writing Regex..
