comment Should you keep a copy of all the code you write?
A question that arises is where exactly source code floats between "art" and "product". Every problem can be approached in different ways, and all the approaches can be implemented differently. Where art is truly unique, source code is somewhat individual but not completely. I understand the emotion of wanting ownership of what you write (as it is a mental product of which sometimes you think no one could have done as good), but also accept that ultimately it belongs to the one you work for - they paid for you to do it.

It shouldn't be a concern imo, how much functionality a code file contains as long as the functionality belongs there. You could eventually split it up into more categories of functionality. For example "permissions", "I/O", "attributes" can all be categories.

comment What is sequential code execution?
That is actually still sequential. Not because the code takes a branch it isn't sequential.
