Brand new here, but invested the last 3 days in Coda videos, documentation, gallery, and trying things out.
I’m familiar with spreadsheets and old RDB design (not so much building and querying, yet, but design, yes). The many Coda tutorials I’ve watched, so far, seem to be either too basic, or too distant from my anticipated use cases to really help me start.
The schema series was great. I want more of that, and more detail, and more varied use cases with the formula tutorials. The Formula Fitness and accompanying docs with user exercises are invaluable, as is Coda’s text-based help documentation, but…
I feel I’m still missing a ton of ‘higher beginner / intermediate level’ design, schema, and formula basics, for how Coda works (at least for my intended uses). I want more confidence in the initial steps to design more varied DBs in Coda—in a bit more detail/depth than the schema series provides, and with broader examples.
Wondering if I learned about, e.g. NoSQL and formulas for that, if there’s better pre-existing literature (books, text problems) that are highly analogous, and might therefore make me more confident with how to best set up initial Coda tables and formulas. I still feel so unstructured in my options.
Any advice? Are there other systems that Coda is similar enough to that I could find a pre-existing learning text to help me find my bearings, more?
I’ll post docs and specific questions, soon, but this post speaks to what I want most—if an analogous-enough system even exists?
