I think you'll enjoy learning irev scripting. It opens up a new world of possibilities.
You should have gotten a link to a document from runrev when you signed up for your on-rev account, which lists the salient differences between LiveCode development and irev scripting. That's a good reference but doesn't give many concrete examples. Here are a couple of places to start:
Sarah Reichelt's on-rev links at http://www.troz.net/. She has lots of really good, well-documented examples, along with links to other sites.
In my class last winter I taught a module on server-side scripting with Rev. You're welcome to peruse the notes and see if they are helpful. Just go to http://revolution.byu.edu and click on Introduction to Programming Revolution. Then scroll down to the section called Server-side Scripting with revTalk.
