Hello @chrismccoy , apologies for my extreme delay in responding. We've just launched a new feature for DigitalOcean Managed MySQL Databases that allows users to set the global SQL mode, which should be helpful in resolving this error. I've also added a warning at the end of the final step in this tutorial that provides some context on SQL modes and lets readers know they may need to modify their database's global SQL modes.

Again, I'm sorry for the radio silence on my part as well as any frustration that this issue caused.
