    NT8 Programing Language

    Hi

    As a long Term NT8 user I have decided to update my programing skills, long overdue. However which programing language is appropriate to NT8. C, C++ or C#.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Seaeagle,

    Thanks for your post.

    NinjaScripts are built on C#. While we do not provide programming education services in the Support Department, there are a vast number of educational C# resources external to NinjaTrader and we do have some tutorials and tools that can assist in the learning process.

    Many users report that a good way to start before fully learning C# is to go through the NinjaTrader 7 NinjaScript tutorials in the help documentation to get a fundamental grasp on .NET framework and how it is used in NinjaScript. From there I suggest looking at the Code Breaking changes for NinjaTrader 8 to understand the differences between NinjaTrader 7 and NinjaTrader 8.

    You can view the tutorials for NinjaTrader 7 here: https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...?tutorials.htm

    Although we do not currently provide NinjaScript tutorials like in NinjaTrader 7, we do provide in-depth help documentation on developing NinjaScripts for NinjaTrader 8. We also provide samples and a complete reference of the language. More in depth educational resources can be found elsewhere throughout the internet.

    You can find the educational resources here: http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG..._resources.htm

    Once you have a basic understanding of C#, I suggest following the documented Code Breaking changes between NinjaTrader 7 and NinjaTrader 8. This page also gives an overview for NinjaScripts in NinjaTrader 8.

    You can find the Code Breaking changes here: http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpG...ng_changes.htm

    Other users have wrote in about this information in our support forums here: https://ninjatrader.com/support/foru...d.php?p=488807

    Also available are webinars on the NinjaScript editor and the Strategy Builder. The Strategy Builder can be used to generate NinjaScript syntax for NinjaScript strategies. You may wish to create a strategy and clicking View Code after each piece of logic created in the Builder to observe the generated syntax.

    You can register for live webinars here: https://ninjatrader.com/PlatformTraining

    Our documentation will be your best friend while developing, and the complete supported NinjaScript interface can be referenced here: http://ninjatrader.com/support/helpGuides/nt8/en-us/

    The information above is publicly available.

    Finally, we also have a vast EcoSystem of NinjaScript Consultants that would be happy to write or modify any NinjaScript at your request. If those services interest you, we can have a representative of our EcoSystem reach out with more information.
