I would pay the $49/month for PluralSight if you said this was the best way.

What options do I have?

I am a C#.NET Full Stack Developer with experience with JavaScript, jQuery and BootStrap on the front end.

I mave a Mac with Windows running under Parallels, where I have Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition.

Any benefit to using VS 2015 versus simply Sublime on my Mac?

Thanks

Personally I am leaning toward MS Code.

As for the immersion - I had a look at CodeSchool - gave a good springboard into Angular 1.x - not sure what there 2.x is like. I am guessing though that any of the online resources is adequate if you have a solid development background.

Best learning ground though is experience. Build and answer questions.

JavaScript knowledge is imperative - jQuery helps but can be a bit of an inhibitor as you have to change the way you think with Angular apps.

Component model makes it a bit more intuitive so I would go with 1.5 building components - switch to 2.0 will be easier and you don't have to get bogged down in the deprecated stuff.

Also start looking at TypeScript if you haven't - Angular 2.0 is written in TypeScript - and VS obviously has built in support for it (another reason for using Code)

In my interviews, I am not hearing many have jumped to Angular 2. I think I will focus my scarce resource on 1.5.

Angular 2 is still gaining momentum - 1.5 is the way to go for now - it is the reason 1.5 exists as a bridge between 1.x and 2. However, while working with 1.5 you can still work with typescript and prepare for Angular 2.0 when it comes out. Typescript is going to start gaining momentum as more and more large scale applications are built on JavaScript.
