No plan survives contact with the enemy, and today the enemy was my 15-year old car. I had every intention of having a shiny new Subrecord video for you all today, and then the rear brakes went out on my car, so I’ve had to spend the day dealing with that instead.
Despite our best intentions and our most detailed plans, no matter how many years of experience we have, life will always have wrenches and curveballs and brake jobs to throw at us, and so will SuiteScript. No matter how much you study or how much you build, NetSuite and SuiteScript will always surprise you. There will always be a new error or an
UNEXPECTED one; NetSuite’s features and designs and APIs are in a constant state of change. It can be maddening!
Maybe I’m rambling; the point is that learning the foundational concepts like NetSuite’s data model, its Script types, its event triggers, and establishing consistent, healthy patterns for common tasks and troubleshooting will make you a much, much better and less frustrated SuiteScript developer in the long run. It doesn’t pay to memorize the methods of the
N/runtime module if you don’t understand what a Script Parameter is.
