Boot Camp - Interactive Tutorial System

We have quietly been working on a new documentation system for QuantConnect to help you get started. We listened to all the community feedback and tried to invent a new way to train you in how to use the platform. What we've designed is a merger of DataCamp, Code Academy and Klan Academy for QuantConnect. We're calling it Boot Camp.

The idea is Boot Camp will get you started with a series of Courses, made of many Lessons, involving many Tasks/Challenges. Tasks are meant to be tiny and easy to achieve with hints and solutions available for you to learn.

When you complete the challenges you'll win experience points and badges. Eventually we might even make it so unlocking different lessons will give you free features on QuantConnect.

https://www.quantconnect.com/bootcamp/

We'll be adding more lessons over the next few weeks. If you're interested in getting notified when we post new content subscribe to this discussion thread and we'll post a the link here.

We'd love your feedback! Please try your hand at a few challenges above.

Hi Jared,

Please, add to your boot camp step-by-step instructions how to publicate backtests' results, such as tables, data, charts etc., using LEAN locally in Visual Studio.

Thanx in advance!

Hi Jared! I'm new to quantconnect. Just finished the first lesson and was sad to find out there were no more lessons available. I had no idea this had been added so recently. Great work! Can't wait for the next lessons!.

This looks like a great idea, I was doing challenges on CodeFights and liked that approach to learning programming.

Good stuff - also interested in seeing more on using the options related APIs as this is a unique feature of QC which attracted me to this platform  - thanks :)

I really enjoyed the tutorial. It made learning the environment easier so far. I was curious though when more material will be released beyond the one tutorial currently available? Thanks and keep up the good work.

Yes, these kind of lessons are very helpful. Stop orders / trailing stop orders and how to do a conditional buy order would be helpful for me (if you're looking for ideas).
