Working on a side project definitely is more for an investment in myself, in that if I'm using my time to learn something that I find interesting and accomplish something that I find equally interesting, then it can only be beneficial for myself. Recently I've taken to using side projects to explore new (to me) stacks, with the latest being Flask.py with a Mongo DB in the back. In fact, the only downside is that sometimes I might forego my actual work (I'm looking at you, PSETs!) or sleep because I'm so into a project that I want to get it done.
