Even now I don't know it that well I have to constantly keep googling it to remember different patterns. If we used it day to day then I think we would learn it better. I watched a video where a developer was using regex for daily productivity.

regex is a classic, I've been through the whole HackerRank's regex course last year but still find myself searching for specific regex patterns

Exactly, I was considering to learn everything there is on it (like taking some advanced course or smth), tho I decided not to. While you know what you can do with it and it's use cases, you can quickly search it up thanks to sites like RegExr and Regex101.
