Do you know what "/" (slash) means?

If you are reffering to the text like /src, / means the root directory of the project.

Ah, that's the source of the confusion.
/ never actually means the root of a project. It's always the root of the filesystem.

E.g. this:

/proto: proto buffers folder(I will explain more later)
/src: the source directory
/src/server: server directory
/src/client: client directory
/src/proto: auto generated code from proto buffers

should read:

proto/: proto buffers folder(I will explain more later)
src/: the source directory
src/server/: server directory
src/client/: client directory
src/proto/: auto generated code from proto buffers

Yes, but when used in this manner it is generally regarded as the root of the project.
