I can certainly agree with that one! Google for No Raw Loops for 
instance. Also, there are a lot of classes by Stephanov online that are 
quite educational (A9 published a couple of series on YouTube). There is 
even one where Sean Parent comes to talk to Stephanovs class there. It 
is an extended version of the No Raw Loops talk you'll find elsewhere.

It pays off to familiarize yourself with these algorithms. You can use 
them more often than you think.
