Excel to Google Docs/Apps Script

I couldn't really find a good place to ask this, so I hope this isn't completely off where it should be.

I'm currently looking into Google Apps Script to see if it would be possible to move from Excel to Google Apps. I know I'm not the first to try doing this.

After testing the waters with basic scripts in Google Docs with their javascript language, I'm finding some things aren't quite as easy to reproduce (if at all). Trying to search through the documentation and support forums doesn't seem to be as easy as I'd expect from Google, either.

I find the documentation of their functions slightly helpful, in the sense that they tell me the syntax that is needed and nothing more. When trying to search here I would expect to be able to search in their documentation, but it seems to take me to the forums instead.

I could go on and list several more difficulties I'm having but that's not the point of this question. My question is this:

1) Surely there must be some other "place" on the internet (besides Google pages) where Google Apps Script is being discussed. Can anyone point me to such a place?
2) Is there any blog/forum that people know of where pros/cons are being discussed about Apps Script?

After having such difficulties navigating their very own forums/documentation, I feel like there must be some other place on the internet to go to for help with google apps script.

Thanks in advance.
