Learn Angular now or wait for v2?

I keep reading that Angular is changing quite a bit in version 2. Is it worthwhile to learn it now or wait until things settle and v2 is released?

Hi Keith,

Even though active development for AngularJS 2 is at full steam it would be better to learn Angular now so you understand the concepts, structures and such.

Without this basic knowledge you might find learning v2 harder whereas having the knowledge of v1 could have valuable insight into what's to come.

Absolutely agree with Chris there. Also you will find in the corporate world Angular 1 will stick around for quite some time. Also imagine you are being asked to upgrade a system's Angular implementation from v1 to v2. You will need a solid understanding of both anyways.
