How to learn Quant Connect Python from ZERO

Back

Hi,

I'm really interested in learning to use QuantConnect based on Python. I have a little experience in coding in Metatrader (which is a more basic language to trade, not object-oriented). I know a little of Python also, but mostly basic stuff.

What is the best way to learn from scratch this language? I need to pay someone in order to start teaching me whats exactly is this class doing, etc.

Is there a way to really start from zero? The Bootcamp seems a little more advanced, not quite for someone who really is starting from zero.

Thank you for the help!

Yeah you can totally start from zero.  I have no coding knowledge and didnt take a class.  Start with the boot camp.  After you're done with the boot camp, think of something simple to start with.  Not even something that would be profitable but just as practice to see if you can make a working algo.  Hit up the documents a ton to look at how to write specific lines for something you want to do.  

 

If I can figure it out, you can.  I've got several working algos

I would actually recommend you invest some time into really learning Python (or C#) instead. There are many great resources for this. The LEAN API helps with simplifying syntax once you're familiar, but getting used to it will likely require banging your head on the wall until it clicks. Debugging errors (which you will inevitably run into when strategies/models scale in complexity) will be especially painful if you are unfamiliar with object-oriented languages.
