Jamie Tanna's profile image

Hi, I'm Jamie Tanna (he/him/his), and I'm currently a Tech Lead (Software Development Engineer 3) at Capital One UK where I'm working on Customer Acquisitions.

I currently live in Nottingham with my partner Anna Dodson and our beautiful terror of a cat Morph.

I use my site as a method of blogging about my learnings, as well as sharing information about projects I have previously, or are currently, working on in my spare time.

I'm a GNU/Linux user, a big advocate for the Free Software Movement, and the IndieWeb movement and I try to self host my own services where possible, instead of relying on other providers.

Drop me an email at hi@jamietanna.co.uk, or using any of the other social links below.

My birthday is on the .

First day back at #CapitalOne's offices in Nottingham after a whopping 545 days is a very weird feeling. Got some freebies, a free breakfast, and our first hybrid standup. Been nice to just wave to people, and I'm looking forward to making the most of the day!


Is the Meetup.com GraphQL API down? I'm seeing HTTP 502s with x-amzn-errortype: InternalServerErrorException. Was hoping to start a migration from REST to the GraphQL API but I guess not!
