New High bus factor* there...
Code should be "owned" by everyone. Program in pairs (or mobs.) Spread knowledge. Test-drive development.

It's ok to be fastest in some areas, but it shouldn't be because you're the only one who knows that part of the program.


* "Bus factor": What happens to the code/project/company if Wade gets hit by a bus? Or its more optimistic cousin: What happens if Wade wins the lottery?

New No, others can code in it.
The reason I'm fastest in those parts is a) I know the language the best b) I've been with the company the longest c) I probably wrote it. Not all, admittedly, but a good proportion of my colleagues can and do code in those areas.
