How do I recreate Geoprocessing Services from tutorials

'm getting started with arcgis api for javascript, and it looks like most of the tutorials recommend using geoprocessing services if I'm trying to apply any of the tools from the toolbox. I'm trying to create something very similar to the zonal stats tutorial (which returns the sum of values in a user-defined polygon), but am having trouble making my own geoprocessing service match the sample one offered up here.

Are there any tutorials pertaining to creating or understanding the services? looking at the reference site that my own service returns, it is very similar to the sample one (same parameter types, same image for the model), but something isn't lining up and I'm unsure of how to figure this out.

Thank you,
