Learn SuiteScript by Example

... not by Trial and Error

Documentation is often wrong or not detailed. Would be useful to see functional examples of more aspects of SuiteScript."

"Lack of learning resources. The official documentation is poor, requires a NS login, has errors, is incomplete..."

"... having more code examples would be the most helpful for me.
