+ - C++ & the STL 12 years later. What do you think now?

Submitted by profBill
profBill (98315) writes "A recent "This day on Slashdot" asked a question about C++ and the STL and what people thought about it all way back in 2002. Well, its 2014 and C++11 is well out there with C++14 on its way.

I teach a second programming course in C++ with a heavy emphasis on the STL (containers and generic algorithms). I just wondered what people think about the situation today. Personally I think C++11 has cleaned up a lot of problems, making it easier to use, but given all those who work with C++ for a living, I wondered what they thought today as compared to then. Are people using C++11, does it matter at all?

Love to share the responses with my students! They are always curious about what practitioners are doing these days."
