After finding this discussion, I got Lean working locally, but apparently, from this post to the email list, you can't backtest locally using the online data source. Since at this point I'm just exploring Lean and potential algorithms backtesting seems the correct way to learn and develop algorithms.

So what is the suggested workflow, it seems developing locally is much more efficient, but then it looks like I need to get the code up to the Algorithm Lab for backtesting. But I haven't discovered any mechanisms for easily getting code between my local system and the Algorithm Lab. Or maybe my thinking is way off track, so what type of workflows would people suggest?
