Advice or tips on learning EasyLanguage

Hi guys, I use MultiCharts and have been practicing backtesting and optimization on codes that are not mine. I took Andrea Unger's course (skilledacademy.com) and have only practiced using the codes in his course. I understood them but creating my own is another different issue.

I'd like some advice on how to learn EasyLanguage. I've searched the forums and everyone points to the tradestation website for literature. Is it worth buying the book they have? I'd like something that has exercises in it with answers. Do you think just studying other people's codes works?

I have gone through the abctradinggroup website and did the basics (for, while and if loops) but looking for something perhaps more advanced.

Any advice on the best way to approach this would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I used this free book to learn. If you can follow it, you can probably do 90% of whatever you want to do.

Thanks Kevin! Great cameo appearance in Andrea's course. Just finished his 3 courses (waiting for the final portfolio one) and I'm planning to check out your work next since I just recently decided to make the switch from discretionary to automated.

juveman11,

the EL Essentials PDF that Kevin pointed out is a great resource and will cover a lot of the basics, I don't think you have to buy a book or course to learn it. Once you know the basics the best advise I can give you is to get your hands dirty with coding.
Other peoples codes can also be a good source for learning and you can find thousand of codes on the net (although I'd suggest to begin with codes that follow some good coding practice like using proper variable names and comments etc. - otherwise it will be much harder to understand).

Regards,

ABCTG
