Why Should I learn Ionic?
With Ionic, even former web developers can use their existing skills to develop mobile apps. No need to learn Swift and Java and have twice the amount of work.
Also, learning Ionic means learning Angular - an awesome framework for web development! Chances are high that if you can't find clients interested in your Ionic skills, you'll find companies looking for talented Angular developers around the web.
