Hi Arnuld,

It's certainly possible. I'm new to the language too and learning it much
the same way. It sounds like you don't have a lot of experience programming.
I think this is an asset, not a liability. I would be interested in what
concepts are the hardest to understand so the community can develop better
tutorials for users without a lot of functional programming and abstract
math background.
