Beast mode Training


Hi I am a fairly new user of DOMO, I find very difficult to sort out in complex calculation the parentheses in Beast mode 


Bearing in mind that I am an advanced user of Excel but never worked with SQL, I wanted to ask what would the best training to understand better Beast mode coding.


I did all the trainings on DOMO.

    Beast modes are really just a smaller subset of SQL commands. You can look up training on different SQL commands or functions online. One resource I like is or You could also look up some online classes like Coursera or Udemity or Khan academy (free!) for SQL to help bolster your SQL prowess.

    Most SQL and Excel have a 1 to 1 variant. For example the today() function in Excel is the same as the current_date() function in MySQL.

    Instead of IF() statements in Excel you'll write a CASE statement in MySQL.

    On most days of the week you can just google an abstracted version of your question and end it with "in MySQL"

    Example: "how do i calculate the start of last week in MySQL." and then use that in Beast Modes.

    P.S. I keep on saying google 'mysql' because most beast mode functions in Domo use the same syntax as MySQL.
