How much time during the day spent on educating myself?
I just started an entry level web development job. It's a small place and I'm the only one doing any coding. I have a basic php knowledge but I'm obviously trying to grow. How much time do you think it would be okay for me to spend during the work day not working on my tasks but just reading books to learn more? Just wondering what the norm is.
