Hi, I'm Jamie Tanna (he/him/his) Jamie Tanna's profile image, and I'm currently a Software Quality Engineer 2 with a passion for backend engineering, especially with regard to APIs and automation.

I've been building up my experience working in a DevOps environment while working at Capital One UK as a Software Development Engineer and am now diving into the details of how we prove out the quality in our software as a Software Quality Engineer.

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 I try to self host my own services where possible, instead of relying on other providers.

  Re-framing how we think about production incidents

This is a great post by Shubheksha and talking about the right way to talk about production issues.

Having a blameless culture makes it easier for new/junior engineers getting started with working on production systems, and makes everyone more comfortable working on things where they know they won't get the blame pointed at them.

I've found that, at work, diagnosing issues in our staging environment has given me such a great experience - it's been great to practice dealing with production-like issues in a non-production environment, as it gives you that time to breath, experiment and learn, as well as giving me much greater understanding of the end-to-end system.
