I'm fairly new to using AMPscript and SSJS and am looking to use both in future email campaigns. However, I'm having a very hard time finding any learning resources outside of the SFMC documentation.

Can anyone suggest any sites/blogs/documents to help a beginner better understand AMPscript and SSJS?

It'd be great if the documentation was better. Unfortunately, there a very few resources outside of the SF ecosystem.

IMO, you've found the best resource -- the marketing-cloud, ampscript and SSJS tags and the helpful community here on SFSE.

Most AMPScript topics have been discussed and re-discussed. The powerful SFSE search can help you find some help right away.

Here's what I recommend for learning AMPScript:

And for Server-side JavaScript:

I've written about several common SFMC topics (AMPScript, SSJS, etc.) on my personal blog. I use these things frequently in my day-to-day work:

Hope this helps.

Adam's links are quite cool for AMPScript but I'd like to add SFMC Cookbook as a resource that focuses on SSJS mostly. Hope it helps
