I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sharepoint is .Net based, so of the three languages you mentioned C# is realistically the one you should be looking at.

As far as books/resources go, you could start with "Beginning SharePoint 2013 Development" published by Wrox.

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

I'd start with this one: http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-SharePoint-2013-Development-Programmer/dp/1118495845/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_z/175-7378268-3667931

As it covers the core principles of Sharepoint development, and will give you the grounding you need to move on to the Business Solutions one.

You should be able to pick up C# easily enough. The steepest learning curve will be in understanding how Sharepoint works, rather than in the language itself.

yeah, I knew. I have a lot of resource about that.

But if I hire other developer, they didn'ot know C#, then I need to know if, sharepoint understand java and PHP , for example ?

Carl TawnSystems and Integration DeveloperCommented:
No. Sharepoint is .Net only, so any of the .Net languages are an option, but not PHP or Java.

ok, so PHP / Java can't talk to Sharepoint 2013 at all ?

Carl TawnSystems and Integration DeveloperCommented:
They'll be able to talk to the APIs/web services, but any modules, custom workflows, etc, you want to add to Sharepoint will need to be .Net
