Cheers guys -- I bumped you up, I'll write a tutorial on how to use GIT later today but the short version is:

1. Make a project
2. When project open, click "Version Control"
3. Upload your Public Key (generate with ssh-keygen if you don't have one)
4. Save the URL it goes you to a safe place.
5. Use Git-Clone to check out a copy of your project

Hi, I have joined QuantConnect very recently. Should I still get one if I can? I mean I am just getting along with my basics so is it too early to get professional license (of any sort)?

No problem at all Teja's, we're giving them away for all of July to thank everyone for their feedback while in beta.

I upgraded your account. It doesn't show anywhere yet but you can use the GIT API now. This is good for collaborating in teams as well as version control!

No problem guys; upgraded!

The professional gives you access to the GIT API at the moment; and in the next couple of weeks we'll roll out the mass data upload + compiled algorithms from private alpha.

Awesome Jared! I browsed through the documentation and all, but was never sure if it was the thing for me. Now I can test all the codes I have and actually use the platform. Thanks!

Cheers @Pankaj - we're in it for the long haul and have very exciting plans so I hope we'll see more of you around!

I like to have one of the free 12 month professional licenses also. Free is good.

Hi, would be great if you can grant me access.

I logged in a while ago and played around with algos but felt that the in-browser editor was a bit limited and initially strange for a new user. If I could use VS2012 it seems a lot easier to get started. GIT sounds cool, can I store my algos on Github or bitbucket?

No worries @Rick, @fandersson, upgraded - enjoy!

Hi I have provided some feedback by email, could I request a do I see correctly '12 months professional upgrade' :) ?
0

Hi, would you please add me on the list of a free 12 month professional licenses? I will really appreciate that :)
0

Hey @Stella, @Anastasios, I've upgraded your accounts :)

@fandersson - At the moment the GIT repo's are stored in QuantConnect, but you can probably synchronize them with your GitHub account somehow, though I'm not exactly sure how.

GitHub charges for private repositories so we use a QC server to cut down costs per user

Hi Jared;

Could you upgrade my account to Professional also?

I'm reading you other post about how to use GIT and VS - looking forward to transferring my current Monte Carlo project onto your platform.

Any help you need in order to move forward with live trading - just ask.
Also very interested in Options.

Regards;
Marc.

No problem@MarcD'aoust, done. We'd love to add options data but are currently limited by data providers. We're currently in alpha of a large scale data uploading tool which will let you use custom datasets - do you have a personal library of option data?

We're in the last phases of live trading integration now and alpha testing with a client :). Thank you for patience as we build it up...

@Jared, any chance this is still available and you'd be willing to offer another professional license for a recently joined user?
