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 .



Has anyone successfully generated Java POJOs from the #Postman #JsonSchema? Using the Maven/Gradle plugin seems to not be able to understand all the different definitions (ie Request) which I kinda don't wanna have to write bindings for myself 🤔


Tonight I've been investigating a few things for my #Postman API Hack and I've found that Postman's OAuth2 support is pretty awesome - it works very nicely with #Indieauth which is an important part of my hack 😉 I'm also pretty happy with what I'm planning on doing - hoping to get some good progress with the hack itself this weekend, too!


So Anna Dodson has perfectly summed up my relationship with #Morph in this photo - I'm having the best time and he's pleading to be left alone 😹 this is after two minutes of purring and kitty kisses, if that helps!

Jamie looking at Morph, a black cat, beaming, with his paw on Jamie's nose, and looking back at the camera with an expression that says "I'm so tired of this shit"


With all the excitement of the #NewHouse, I'd missed this #Christmas hamper from work - what a lovely reminder of #LifeAtCapitalOne and the wonderful ways we're looked after - in addition to the £100 M&S voucher I won last week!

A box of Tetley English Breakfast tea, a carton of 200 Degrees Brazillian Love Affair coffee, a card from Capital One, a cone titled reindeer food and a warning that it isn't for human consumption, a cone of sweets, a jar of winter chutney, a jar of festive picallili, and a mulled wine kit with instructions for alcoholic and non-alcoholic variants


Last year I wrote https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/12/16/second-appendixaversary/ as a reflection on the rupturing of my #appendix two years ago. I can't believe it's three years on, and I really can't imagine how I would have coped if it were this year
