Jamie Tanna's profile image

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

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.

I have ADHD (Inattentive Type) and am learning how to make my life work better around it.

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

My birthday is on the .

Hey, if you're the type of person that can start typing a reply to an argument, then decide that actually it's not worth bothering with and delete the reply, I want you to know: You're doing fantastic, and you should be proud of yourself. I wish more people had that kind of restraint.

The open source coding philosophy has enormous appeal to many software engineers, and with good reason. Open source libraries, applications, and operating systems are now essential to the overall technology ecosystem. And the number of open source projects is only increasing. But many developers don’t know how to get involved in open source. Or, they


I'm super excited to be part of the Open Source and Open Source Software Track Call for Papers (CFP) committee at #OpenUK's second State of Open Conference 🚀

It's my first time getting involved in the CFP process and I've got some great folks to learn from on the committee, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing what awesome sessions y'all have to share.

You've only got till Friday to submit a session, so best get sending them to https://stateofopencon.com/cfp/ 👀

Wow. https://archive.is/wAt0i, an archived copy of https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2023-11-22/nlrb-files-case-against-mozilla-for-not-hiring-labor-activist. This is really what I'm afraid of. And I'm stupid findable on the Web (thanks to not using an alias — that bit me in the ass very fast — like in 2013, but whatever). I'm hoping Cher wins this case; I'll be following it closely. Especially because I've applied like four times at Mozilla with not as much as a reply if the role was closed or anything. Sidenote, though, I hate the fact that's this idea that we can sign away rights because we have a contract — and that's never clear if it's actually the case. I really am glad she stood up.
