Hi 👋

I'm Eduard Urbach, a software developer trying to create high quality open source software solutions.


In an age where technology is meant to simplify our lives, it's ironic how often we find ourselves grappling with bloated software - programs that are swollen with unnecessary features, bogged down by excessive complexity, and burdened with what feels like digital excess baggage. Welcome to the era of feature creep, where software developers seem to prioritize quantity over quality, overwhelming users with an avalanche of functionalities that they never asked for nor needed.

As a wise man once said:

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

We shouldn't ask ourselves how much we can add, but how much we can remove, while still maintaining the core task of the software. This leads to much simpler and easy to understand code. I'll quote Terry Davis:

An idiot admires complexity, a genius admires simplicity.

Making a topic look complex is easy, but making it simple and easy to understand is what truly takes skill. Instead of complex and over-engineered solutions that make us "feel intelligent" just because they're complex we should strive for simplicity.


One of the more unique facts about my life is that I spent 8 years in Asia, more specifically Japan and Korea. This helped me broaden the pool of languages I can utilize to communicate and it also gave me an understanding of the subtle differences between Western and Eastern cultures.

Currently I speak:

🇩🇪 GermanFußbodenschleifmaschinenverleih.
🇯🇵 Japanese仕方ないよね〜
🇰🇷 Korean두유 노 김치?
🇷🇺 Russianдавай давай!


I like Arch Linux as my operating system for multiple reasons:

My desktop is now based on Hyprland after having used Gnome Shell for the past 10 years.

I use Neovim as my lightweight editor and VS Code only if it has better plugins for the project I'm working on.

I am currently experimenting with fish as my daily shell replacing zsh.


In case you want to contribute to any projects, join #community:akyoto.dev with a client you like. I recommend Cinny because it has a beautiful design and closely resembles Discord.
