Are META tags worth learning/using? I heard that they aren't really necessary any more.

they arnt necessary but they do help optimize the search of your site in a seach engine. So it may be worth using.

Google certainly doesn't use the keyword version of these anymore, but I'm not sure how widespread this is. Description values may be worth it, though, if that matters to you.

Other implementations of the meta tag are quite important, like specifying your charset or choosing which mode IE8 should render in.
