I would learn the basic fundamental things, not the hot stuff.
By definition they last much longer and are more generally useful.
For example DNS, I don't really understand DNS and all those strange DNS records.
Mastering DNS will be a useful skill long after Bitcoin & Blockchain will be forgotten.

Clojure. I know Common Lisp and Scheme, although haven't used either since the 90s. I'm intrigued by idea of a language from the Lisp family for the JVM. I've had teaching myself Clojure on my todo list for quite some time now, but keep putting stuff ahead of it.

I would love to learn some system programming, like how the systems like database, cache, etc really works.

I'd learn all the ACM Turing Lectures from the beginning until at least 1990 (or beyond).

I've been getting into integrations. Glue code, automations, scripting. I wish I had more time for it. I want to learn all the "zippers and buttons" of programming.

SRE or platform engineering, I think that is becoming essential in these days.

Lisp, Clojure and Erlang. Those all seem like really great languages.
