Are there any tutorials available for ACSIL other than the reference guide: https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/AdvancedCustomStudyInterfaceAndLanguage.php

What is the best way to learn how to develop using ACSIL?

I'm not aware of any good tutorials.
Personally, I learned the basics of C++ programming from cplusplus.com. I had previously programmed in other languages, but never C++.
I downloaded Notepad++ as my editing tool, then I spent time studying the ACSIL documentation on the Sierra website.
But the most valuable study material is the source code that Sierra provides for the vast majority of its built-in studies. This source code can be found in the SierraChart\ACS_Source directory, in the series of files with names like "studies1.cpp".
Having this source code is enormously valuable. When I start a new project, I still begin by finding a study that comes with Sierra that does something similar to what I want to do, finding the source code for it, then making a copy and modifying it to meet my needs. This saves an enormous amount of time compared to starting from scratch.
