folder structure

Since my first impact with the electrical zero and one processing machine, i am thinking about a well structured folder structure - so the same thing you are doing day in and day out ;-). Finally, after many tests, my current folder structure is stable for a long time. This could either mean "it fits my needs" or "well i'm getting used to it". I'm crossing fingers it's the first guess :-). Nevertheless, since this is my blog about coding, politics and the world, i would share my knowledge, so also my folder structure. Take a look to it, i listed the main idea below and also prepared a kind of "folder structure template" you can download. If you have suggestions for improvements, add a comment.
