In this talk Phil aims to persuade you that whenever you think of writing a regular expression, you should consider writing a parser instead.
Through some live-coding using Parboiled2 (https://github.com/sirthias/parboiled2), Phil will show that writing simple parsers in Scala is easy and demonstrate that parsers are more readable, more composable and provide more useful information when things go wrong than regular expressions.
