Easy Language for Tradestation: Beginners Guide?

Curious if anyone knows of some good tutorials on writing in easy language for Tradestation. I'm trying to mess around with some algo trading but I'm a total beginner. I need to understand how to write my ideas in code.

Need help coding

Thank you very much. I have been researching for a while now but can't figure out how to get my algo to do what I want it to. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would be happy to send out my idea and get some help coding it to do what I want it to do.

Here are a lot of free Tradestation ELD files to play around with:

I have found DJtradingsystems to be very helpful in beginning my algo journey. Thank you for the reference. I see how much there is to it and I have so much to learn and test. I am having a bunch of ideas pop up but so far none of my ideas come close to KJ's free strategy when doing backtesting. if that one is free I wonder how good the ideas are that you have to pay to get. My goal is to have somewhere around 10 tradeable strategies that all have very robust returns so that I can diversify and achieve superior returns.

One day I dream of quitting my job and managing algos full time. that would be heaven for me. I need as much help as possible. I learned after two years of failure that discretionary trading is out for me. Too many variables to keep track of. I need to keep it super simple.

I appreciate the shout out! I would say that free strategy is typical of the others.
