Hey guys - so I am not new to python - I taught mysef the basics online,. I am not new to trading.

I am new to systematic / quant trading and I am *LOST*. Where do I start? DO I read all the documentation first? Do I clone an algo and just deploy that way? I don't know where to begin and am looking for a little structure / guidance to help?

I've tried just getting on with it - but I get stuck when I don't really understand what a function / method / attribute means

I am also *super eager* to build/ create something to keep my motivation up 

Genuine help requested and I would be very appreicative of any pointers
