I recently recorded the first part of a video lecture series introducing the Standard Template Library. It assumes familiarity with C++, but begins with the STL basically from scratch. Channel 9 hooked up my laptop so I could write, compile, and execute code as I went along. Check it out here: http://channel9.msdn.com/shows/Going+Deep/C9-Lectures-Introduction-to-STL-with-Stephan-T-Lavavej/
I’ll be recording more parts of this series with Channel 9 in the near future, responding to your comments along the way.
