Interesting vid. Like a few have said, there's probably not a huge amount of new or unfamiliar material here for your average C++ dev since usage of boost's shared_ptr is already fairly widespread, but it's still worth watching. If you're just wanting to take a quick dip into C++ with this vid then Stephan probably glosses over a lot of detail which would make it a little hard to follow at times. There's a lot of explanation in the vid that assumes you've already made the conceptual leap into thinking in C++ mode.

Is Microsoft's implementation of TR1 based on Dinkum's implementation like the STL?
