The Maximum Integrated Data Acquisition System (MIDAS) has been used in many test beam experiments over the last years. It has been developed in a collaboration between PSI, Switzerland and TRIUMF, Canada, and is constantly updated and extended after its initial revision more than 20 years ago. This tutorial gives a basic overview of the MIDAS components and concepts and their application to test beams. It covers event-based data acquisition, slow control of beam lines and other experiment components, data visualization and its web-based user interface. Various short demonstrations show various MIDAS components and example programs.
