I want to learn blockchain technologies.
If i want to develop a simple application in blockchain what are the technologies should be learnt. anyone can explain the flow of the learning.

It depends if you really want to have a deep knowledge of the blockchain technology or just create applications on it.
Those are technical explaination of how the blockchain works but those paper could appear too "gross". If you have some basics understanding of computer science but you find those paer too complicated : bitcoin mooc. This was a really good start for me and is more digest than the previous paper. There is also a lot of blogs and youtube videos explaining very well how the blockchain technology works.
Basicly this is what you have to know :
- blockchain databases (hashes, asymetric cryptography, digital signature, merkle tree ...)
- Consensus between user (block creation / block mining)
- blockchain networking

In principle however you can utilise any programming language.
For interacting with a node you need to interface with JSON_RPC endpoints. A number of languages have libraries available which make this easy.
Generating address/signing transactions is more in depth and requires an understanding of cryptography (Keccak256, elliptic curves) and the various standards/formats that Ethereum uses. These are outlined in the yellow paper.
