Merry Christmas to all Niners who celebrate it! This is the last episode of STL's intro to STL series. A great way to end the year and a nice gift for all of you out there who are interested in and/or practice the art of native programming with C++. Enjoy. Learn.

In **part 10**, the final chapter in this magnificent introductory series covering the STL, Stephan introduces us to **type traits.**

**Stephan (I guess we can just call him STL now, eh?) will be back!!** Look for a new series on advanced C++ topics and deeper dives into the implementation details of the STL. Yes, Advanced STL with STL is on the horizon. Much thanks and praise for Stephan's **exemplary **lectures!

Enjoy! Learn!
