The end result will be that it'll be awesome
But more then that we can find out:
-Something about the way Randal created the language
-If it is just a modern language written in a weird system (I'm personally holding out on the possibility that it is some sort of "futurized" English)
And also, I don't think we should limit ourselves to just trying to seek the knowledge that is "useful." Why can't we know all of the things?
We can't know all of the things, but we can know any of the things.

Math, the sciences, humanities, ... Big data needs dealing with. Literature is analyzed using programs. If you can't write your own, you are at the mercy of those who can, both professionally and as a citizen. Learn to program, but find something satisfying as a career.
And I've made a career of fixing the programming of those that thought like that. And, I found it quite satisfying. Not saying no one should learn anything about it unless they intend to make it a career, but we do need career programmers. Most of us can probably do a little bit of home or car repair, but we also probably have tasks we turn over to someone else, recognizing we don't have the needed skills to do it effectively. Sure, learn enough that you aren't paying to replace the flux capacitor, but do the part you're good at, get someone else to do the part they are good at. That's not being at their mercy, that's everyone working to their strengths.
