Jamie Tanna's profile image

Hi, I'm Jamie Tanna (he/him/his), and I'm currently a Senior Software Engineer at Deliveroo.

I currently live in Nottingham with my partner Anna Dodson and our cat Morph and our puppy Cookie.

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 .

I was recently reminded of the importance of error handling by the memory of a time when I thought I'd hacked my school at age 12 because I found some software (CSE toolkit) that when I went in and tried to change a student's password, from my own account, it rendered it as successfully changed. The folks building it didn't even consider the fact that someone with access to the program wouldn't have Domain Administrator rights - always make sure edge cases and error handling works, folks!
