Thanks for the great post. Having a side project is something that all developers should do. Learning is much more effective when you have a real goal that you are trying to achieve. Learning a framework without putting it to use is hard.

The successful tech companies are the ones that actively encourage their employees to work on non-work projects.

Like you I have reimplemented my project in several languages over the years. Each version adds a few new features.
