Sure, why that would be a problem. Just start with Tutorials. Or, if you prefer, books are available as well. Then find some problem and try to solve that with what you already learn. If you get stuck, don't hesitate to post to SoPW. Explain what you're trying to achieve, what things don't work as you expect, along with sample code, and sample data if applicable.
