I never code my personal project in office because firstly, computer and web usage(for example, commits to private repos) are monitored and secondly, it is easy to get caught by a coworker strolling by my desk and looking over my shoulder because my personal projects are usually fun-based (OpenGL and Direct3D) whereas work projects are non-GUI services and last but not least, I do not want the company to 'own' my personal projects, just because I work on them during office hours.
