Can the ExponentialMovingAverage tutorial be recreated please?

I'm brand new to QuantConnect however I'm a 35 year veteran programmer with 20 languages under my belt and 10 years experience in both C# and java.

I took the Exponential Moving Average 50-10 cross tutorial (my first experience with this product) and I kept getting compile errors stating that the methods I'm trying to call don't take 2 parameters. I followed the video exactly.

On a hunch, I renamed ExponentialMovingAverage and viola. Looks like this name is already used in the QuantConnect libraries.

It was very frustrating and could be a major turn off to some. For a while, For several hours I was certain that the compiler was buggy and this was a shoddy product. I think, consider the tutorial is the first experience many have with your product, it is probably loosing customers/developer interest.

Hey Tom, welcome to QC - Sorry about the video. We've shifted the indicator system into the base of QC and made it much more powerful so people don't need to reinvent the wheel. I'll put a note on the video so others aren't confused in the future.

I've also gone through all the other tutorials and all QCU demonstration algorithms and made sure they're all working with the latest code base.
