Ask Slashdot: It's 2014 -- Which New Technologies Should I Learn?
I think given the momentum C++ has right now (for better or worse, I can't say yet) you should try to learn C++11 and all the new tricks that come with it.

Maybe even do an incentive to promote coming with the battery at 1% instead of 50% (if these batteries don't handle a charge from 50% well).
