As a C# .NET Full Stack developer, I am getting overlooked for jobs dues to my lack of Angular knowledge. So I plan to use my time to watch video and start writing some code. But what version of Angular?

What are the problems with Angular 2 that keep companies from upgrading?

Should I focus my learning on Angular 1?

Thanks

We have been using Angular 1.x for some time now. I use 1.4 for example. The problems with Angular 2 are that it is late, it is different from Angular 1 and that it promotes TypeScript as the development tool. Furthermore there is a considerable amount of free code (controls, widgets and the like) with Angular 1 which will require upgrading for 2.

There are a lot of blog posts on Angular 1 and a fair number of books - my preferred reading. There's currently not so much on 2. There are also a fair number of tools and snippets for 1. I shall move to 1.5 later this year and shall track 2, But I'm not sure I'll switch to 2 - after all one has to learn TypeScript - and that just after CoffeeScript. And I'm still asking whether the advantages of Angular 2 are really worth the effort. After all, Angular 1 - with all its oddities and quirks - does get the job done.

I'm afraid the question : "Should I focus on Angular 1" I can't answer. I think that utilmately Angular 2 is a good thing - but on the other hand there are several other frameworks like React which address the same problem areas, and the industry is notorious for dropping one horse for another.

I see you asked a question earlier this month which Julian Hansen answered. Did that help?

The best way to get the hang of it is to migrate an application you have made to the Angular platform...
