I have just moved to magento, and I have seen magento 2 is out for a while, so it seem obvious that I should start with magento 2. But considering that many customers in the market will not adopt change and migrate to magento 2, is it wise to start from magento 1.9 and then move to magento 2.
I say this because many people who hire magento developer usually want developer for existing system, and chances of starting on new system is quite slim. And another thing to consider is that structure of both versions are different as well. And to migrate from previous to new version, we need knowledge of both systems.
So how much beneficial would it be to start from 1.9 and move to 2.
