I am a neophyte at this Lotus Scripting Language. What would you say would be the best way for me to learn it?
Probably the best way is just to try doing some real simple things. It's not too difficult to learn with a little practice and the Designer Help database will come in real hand. In my opinion, you could help yourself a lot by trying to learn relationship between the Domino classes. Once you know how the classes interact with one another, you'll be able to build some real powerful applications.
