Thanks for all the kind words, everyone! I've been hoping to write a follow-up article to this since I originally wrote it in early 2017, but it's only in the brainstorming stages today. I do plan to convert this into a talk and give it at a few conferences around my area, though. Let me know if you're interested to have a little bit of a different talk at your meetup/conference, covering regexes and how I think they could save you lots of headaches :)
