Yes, that should definitely be possible. Set yourself some goal (a program
you'd like to see), and work towards it. Initially try not to be too
ambitious! Try something simple with text or numbers first. Later on you
may process to reading files and processing data, or to making a user
interface for your program, and so on. Be sure not to give up too early;
curiosity and perseverence are the key. And ask questions on this list!
Python's a good language to start with if you're a beginning programmer.
As an aside, it's conventional on the net not to write your mails in
