You should be familiar with using the standard library,
but you don't need to know about the implementation.

Are there any areas that you're specifically interested in?
Boost is a collection of many libraries. There's a list
If you want to contribute to Boost, here are some things
you can do:
- Follow this mailing list and participate in
- Look at tickets at svn.boost.org and add test cases
- Implement an algorithm and submit it for Boost.Algorithm.
- If you have an idea for a new library, propose it
on this list.
