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.

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 ?

No. Sharepoint is .Net only, so any of the .Net languages are an option, but not PHP or Java.

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

For the ease of programming, I think we have to wait for Sharepoint 2015.

I think it should be a product that can be program by as much programming language as possible !
