Yeah, it is a funny thing. We try to learn new things to expand our horizons and become better developers. But if we don't have this immediate need, it's complicated to become more proficient at the thing we are learning.

Personally, from now on, I only dive deep in a new technology if I am expecting to encounter it frequently ( either as a side-project or in my job ). But I find this situation to be a very difficult part of being a programmer.
