What is it?

The NinjaScript Programmer's Launch Pad V8 is a tutorial designed for programmers new to the NinjaScript programming environment for NinjaTrader 8. It begins by providing the new NinjaScript programmer with a clear understanding of the underlying structure, data, key classes, and efficient programming techniques for writing NinjaScript indicators. This same foundation of knowledge is necessary for creating automation strategies in NinjaScript, although automated strategies are outside the scope of the book. The Launch Pad can shave days off the learning curve, and is an excellent supplement to NinjaTrader's own excellent documentation.

Why the tutorial?

Since NinjaTrader's documentation and support forum is so good, why use a tutorial? Simply because many of us benefit from a "yellow brick road" approach to learning—something that starts at the beginning and has a clear path to guide you along the way. Once you have established a strong foundation of knowledge, building on it becomes very easy. The Launch Pad is designed to help you build that foundation quickly. Let the Launch Pad be your guiding hand.
