Is it possible to carve out 3 hours for self-education during the working day?

Hi all.

Decided to try the "roll" of freelancing in the office for the sake of time, the white salary, mortgage, respect among boys, the experience in major companies, and the like buns, as I realized that at home freelancing I difficult to develop (alas, 3 years of work on freelancing rate your level as a junior, due to the fact that you managed to find only one type of orders) and just devolving socially. Well and banal tired of sitting at home, and the options for freelancing out of cafes and co-working spaces are regarded as a perversion of the very essence of freelancing (as for me personally, the freelance has always meant that it is unnecessary to go anywhere, working wrapped tight in a chrysalis in your house).

Rate per hour in local offices are of course much less than freelance, but also "to plow," as I understand it, 8 hours a day which rarely make (although I saw a cool story that in many companies there are cameras and a program of tracking employees, I certainly will not go). Therefore the idea was born to combine learning and working (read on Habre, that many, almost the majority do).

Question - is it possible to find a few hours (ideally 3 hours) of the office working day for self-education? I understand that it's all individual and depends on the office, but interested in your experience, to understand how it is at least average and that will be about to count on.
My plan so far is 1-2 hours in the morning, when the bosses and 1-2 hours in the evening when the chiefs had already left. And perhaps even the company itself will encourage this and not have "hiding", assuming of course that all tasks will be closed promptly and efficiently (see these precedents on the same habré)

Normal managers normal companies officially lay in the plan from 8 to 16 working hours per week for self-education of the programmer. Education Junior lay more.
if so, then just fine - carlie commented on June 14th 19 at 19:08

It all depends on the project and the company. In some of your education will still encourage free travel on training and education, and all your attempts will be to cut at the root. For this initially look for a place where this good part of the buns along with the lounge and cookies

Most likely, will not work. But it is possible to reduce the transport time (the closer), and also to get up early (at 5 in the morning).

Completely depends on the project (not even from the office, because in a large office, separate teams can have their own schedule).
However, to find the office where people can freely engage in the self-study 2-3 hours a day (and this preferably with full concentration and not to twitch every 20 minutes, distracted by work) - will be difficult. Here to sit on the toaster, looking up from his work for a couple of minutes - is easy everywhere.
Well, I plan to split this interval training for 2 (or 3 in the morning, after lunch, before leaving) part of an hour, no one will notice - carlie commented on June 14th 19 at 19:14
can part still raboteg avrameni not at the expense of the work -- that is, to learn within a job in work that will be useful outside. For example there is a technology or library-you need to study it more carefully than you have in the work. - carlie commented on June 14th 19 at 19:17
well, it's natural, even on freelancing do - Mohamed_Lind75 commented on June 14th 19 at 19:20
to plan working hours in the office, even before the employment is a bad idea.
You already know how much you need to come?
You already know how much scrum meeting?
You already know what time zone the customer operates, and how many regular meetings with him?

At work you are dependent on the project, and their plans. - carlie commented on June 14th 19 at 19:23
well, it's a rough plan to distribute it in less than a minute. The idea really is more important, no matter what. I'm even willing to stupidly 3 hours to sit in the headphones, studying English, in case of emergency - Jeff28 commented on June 14th 19 at 19:26
and if the work is so much that can't sit?
In General, the question is not on the subject of the toaster. it all depends on the project and the PM-and - carlie commented on June 14th 19 at 19:29
so we gain experience. the question may not on the subject, purely curiosity - Jeff28 commented on June 14th 19 at 19:32

2-3 hours IMHO fantastic, really can go half an hour if there is no rush. Do you have a legitimate hour for lunch, it is possible to use it. However, you have to average it takes 30-60 minutes on the road in public transport, you have even more time reading.
If you really want rapid growth, you will probably not be able to spend the ENTIRE work only 8-9 hours. Except when the company is actively pumping employee (however, in such companies often do not go to work from bell to bell)
