I am rather new to Quantopian, however I have quite a bit of python programming experience as I have been doing quite a big of data science and machine learning/deep learning projects with scikit-learn and tensorflow. I have also wrote a few web scrapers, so I am quite comfortable from the programming aspect and how data structures work. However, In terms of the general components of a trading algorithm, trading strategies, finance knowledge, I am a bit clueless as I do not have any prior knowledge on this. I plan to go through the three sections within the "Learn" tutorials as this would be a good start. How long did it take anyone in the same boat as me (coding experience from multiple languages, no finance knowledge) to start creating their own trading algorithms? The fact that it is in python makes me feel that I have already conquered half the battle, yet I am still unsure. I'm a statistics student at my university and quite frankly I feel like dedicating my time to statistical concepts would be more beneficial than trying to go read finance textbooks. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.
