Discussion on: How much does your job dictate what new tools you learn vs self-direction?

When I was starting as a dev, at work I learned super fast and at home I consolidated the lack of knowledge (patterns, language, tools, best practices, etc.).

Now I try to expand the scope of the task to introduce or apply new cool stuff I'm interested into (but it can be frustrating if we cross it with deadlines...). Side projects or Open Source at home is what makes me happy now.
