Thanks! I would recommend giving it a try. If you can dip your toe in to a seemingly esoteric topic you are often exposed to new ideas which change how you think about programming.

I also don't have a CS degree so I know what is like to worry about wasting your time when you may not understand some fundamental things. Learning isn't a linear process. Go and explore. Then you can come back with even greater motivation to understand the fundamentals.
