Running Strategy Created in Visual Studio in QuantConnect, Not Locally

Hi,

I've been digging through the documentation but haven't been able to find the answer to this.

Is it possible to develop a strategy in Visual Studio and the run a backtest or live on Quant Connect, not locally using Lean?  I believe there was a REST API for this but it's not marked as obselete?

Apologies if this has already been answered, I couldn't find a clear answer.

Thanks

Update Backtest








The old API is deprecated but the new one is in progress -- you can see the code in API.cs in the Lean Project. This will let you create projects, save files, and backtest on them locally.

Thanks Jared, have tried creating a project, uploading a file to it, and running a backtest.  So far so good, very impressive.

Great news Tim :) To avoid rate limiting please don't run more than one backtest consequtively at a time. We're going to make an optimization service for running massively parallel backtests very soon.
