Scott Meyers Training Courses

Effective STL Programming

The STL is revolutionary, but learning to use it well is a challenge. This seminar, based on Meyers' Effective STL, reveals the critical rules of thumb employed by the experts -- the things they almost always do or almost always avoid doing -- to get the most out of the library.

Course Highlights

Participants will gain:

Each attendee will also receive a copy of Effective STL.

Who Should Attend

Systems designers, programmers, and technical managers involved in the design, implementation, and maintenance of production libraries and applications using the STL. Participants should already know the basic features of the STL (e.g., containers, iterators, algorithms, and function objects), but expertise is not expected. People who have learned the STL recently (e.g., from Meyers' Introductory STL course), as well as people who have been programming with it for some time, will come away from this seminar with useful, practical, proven information.


Lecture and question/answer. There are no hands-on exercises, but participants are welcome to use their computers to experiment with the course material as it is presented.


Two full days (six to seven lecture hours per day).
