Based on existing skills, expand

some others pointed out, so like connecting with cloud services. Azure or Amazon

if like database work, then Linq (method or query syntax) and database as code stuff (code first) in either C# (i assume VP.Net has same support)

and then connecting and interacting with the various cloud storage solutions: Blob, Cosmos (if not renamed this week D'Oh! | :doh: ), and Tables (I like the Tables for small flexible working storage)

And then C# 11, and the very quick jumps of major versions in c#6 was 2015, now is c# 11. Syntactic sugar, some I am a bit nope, but some like returned named tuples, instead of creating yet another object or returning Item1,Item2

Figure out the WHAT not the HOW, what do you want to make, then look up what languages or features can help make. If an employer is demanding language X, but you can comfortably say well this language is better suited, better supported, and longer lasting, and I can start working on it today, or sure, take risk on that which young dev moves company in 6 months, and then you stuck hiring someone at x2 because no one wants to to that language.
