My presentation, STL Algorithms in Action, from CPPcon 2015 has been posted:
As a reminder, you can find the presentation slides here.
And you can find example code right here.
You can find the example source code for Tuesday’s STL Algorithms in Action right here:
These are very simple examples that were used to put together the presentation. They were built with gcc 5.2 and clang 3.8.
You can find them right here:

I will post a link to the presentation video when it is complete.
I am looking for examples of really clever or creative applications of STL algorithms to solve problems.
I am working on a book on STL algorithm usage. You folks are all much smarter than me, so I would love to add some amazing examples of any and all algorithms in the STL tool chest, with generous attribution to the authors!
C++11/14 or C++98 are both great. We have people trying to solve problems in both the old and new worlds, so solutions in either are fine. Lambdas? Sure! Bind? No problem.
So if you’ve solved some problems creatively with clever use of one or more STL algorithms, please share it with the world. If it looks good, I’ll post it on my blog and consider it for inclusion as an example in the book.

Being a lightning talk, many points are touched only briefly, and some barely at all. I will post something going deeper in the future.
PowerPoint slide deck: Anatomy of a Smart Pointer
Being a lightning talk, it’s quick and hits each point briefly. The topic could certainly be explored more deeply.
PowerPoint slide deck: Assertions of Competence
CPPcon 2014 presentation I did with Rachel Cheng. This was a grab-bag of topics, but focused on two primary areas:
