Side Projects

Jeff and Matt talk about getting involved in projects outside of your normal employment.

In this episode Matt and Jeff talk about how and why you should consider getting involved in side projects. Despite the jovial subtitle, “Getting a little side action,” participating in development outside of your normal development routine is beneficial to you as a developer as well as to your employer or clients. They further expand on the topic by talking about non-code-related side projects such as podcasts, discussion groups, or even writing.

If you’re looking for a project to get involved with, the PHP Mentoring Mentor App would love to have your participation. Contact either of us, or come hang out in #phpmentoring on Freenode to get involved.
