Should I be focused more on Bootstrap 3 or 4 while learning, practising and building my websites?

While Bootstrap 3 is still in Alpha stage, anything can change. At the same time in my opinion learning something that will be replaced soon (Bootstrap 3) anyway is going backwards and that is almost never good in software and technology. The question is: Bootstrap 3 or 4 should be my weapon:) ?

You should be learning Bootstrap 3 to understand the framework. I have studied both and there are changes to v4-Alpha that are major. Also, because Bootstrap 4 is in its Alpha phase, things could be deprecated and you'll end up wasting time. Also, you don't want to use an Alpha product for real clients down the line if Bootstrap 4 isn't ready when you begin working for clients.

Learn Bootstrap 3 its worth it besides even on Bootstrap 4 i doubt that there will be much syntax changes. So go for it.
