About Sven Eden

"Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand." (

My name is Sven Eden, I was born in 1976 and am working as a software developer. I love working on open source projects, and do so for over two decades now. One of my first publications, Demolition Man V1.5 for Quake, SpeakersII Edition, is even still available, although it is dated 1998-08-20.

I am working on a variety of open source projects, and am the chief maintainer on some of them. The following is a non-finished list, as I did not setup all of my projects, yet.
  • Chief Maintainer: elogind - systemd-logind Standalone
  • Chief Maintainer: PrydeWorX Library - Tool library for C++ developers
    This need some major rewrites - scheduled to when I get some free time...
  • Chief Maintainer: getRandomName - Tool to *really* generate random names
  • Chief Maintainer: makeSimplexTexture - Generate textures using simplex noise
  • Chief Maintainer: ufed - The Gentoo USE Flag Editor
  • Chief Maintainer: XFS Undelete
    This needs a full rewrite - scheduled to when I have updated pwxLib...
  • Contributor: Atomic Tanks - a Scorched Earth Clone
    This needs some major updates - maybe after XFS undelete got its first release...

Further I am a Gentoo proxy maintainer, meaning that I am responsible for some packages being available through Portage: My Gentoo Maintainer PageThus I hope I find enough patrons on LiberaPay and Patreon to allow me to reduce my working hours per week.
I would then invest this time into my FOSS projects.
$26.82 of $1,787.70 per month
When I reach €1,400 per month, I can reduce my weekly work hours to 30. I can then have a full day off that I can invest on full-time open source development.
