Thinkscript newbie - where do I start?

First post - I've been observing this forum for a little over a week now, and love the feedback many have posted in here.

I've been actively trading stocks and options actively for about 2 years since the covid dip. I had an active Fidelity account, and opened a TOS account to take advantage of tools I don't get with Fidelity. I discovered Thinkscript as one of those features and started researching, in my travels I found this site via Reddit.

I would love to leverage scripts to help with some of the heavy lifting in my trades, I have a full time job so my learning will be using TOS on demand and occasional day trades. Wondering if there's anyone here in my position that can provide guidance on how they began and had eventually found it valuable to upgrade to the VIP? There's just an overwhelming amount of information on this site and would like to understand how I can begin incorporate think script to aid me in my trading decisions. Thank you in advance!
