Discussion on: Your unfinished pet projects are letdown or a gain?

It depends on how far you go. If you always come to the same place and stop you don't gain anything from that project.
Me, for example, started my first project that was stupidly big for one man team and I had no chance of finishing it. But for the first time in my life, I wrote repository pattern and unit of work to entity framework from scratch. Learned a lot about EF and delegates...
Next project I setup DI for the first time, configured Automapper and wrote my first unit tests.
From my last PET I gained nothing! Copied my repository patter, wrote some actions and tests and then summer came and I gave up so it was complete waste of time
