  1. Introducing the Standard Template Library (STL)

About this video

C++ is one of the most widely used programming languages. Fast, efficient, and flexible, it is used to solve many problems. In particular, it is the Standard Template Library (STL) that gives C++ its power. In this course, we show you how.

Using real-world examples, we focus on how STL handles and manipulates data. We examine containers and iterators, and how data can be transformed into meaningful information using algorithms. There is coverage of I/O streams, strings and numerical methods, and how performance can be optimized through careful consideration of memory allocation and manipulation. We also demonstrate how multitasking and shared data is handled through concurrency and parallelism classes and utilities.

By the end of the course, you will understand the newer aspects of C++ STL and will be able to overcome tasks that are time-consuming or would break your stride while developing.
