I think it's a good idea to start with controller scripts. See Leslie's page for a good tutorials and simple examples:
http://www.biederman.net/leslie/tutorials/ASL%20Scripting/ASL_scripting.htm

As for general plugins, the best you can do is to download some simple scripts written by other users and try to understand them. And don't forget to read the ASL specification:

See this topic for a good explanation of the Plane Primitive plugin:

To be honest, I started writing a complete ASL tutorial for beginners a while ago. It's almost done, but uh... you know how hard it can be to actually finish something ::) I promise I will try a little bit harder...
