Jamie Tanna's profile image

Hi, I'm Jamie Tanna (he/him/his), and I'm currently a Tech Lead (Senior Software Engineer) at the Central Digital and Data Office where I'm working under the Data Standards Authority on api.gov.uk, improving cross-agency API usage, and the further development of https://www.api.gov.uk/.

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 .

Does anyone in the #Go community know if go:embed is meant to work when using go install? I've got a repo that doesn't appear to embed the template when go installing it with go version go1.17.6 linux/amd64, only when go building it

Edit: looks like it's solved itself, and it does work, woops!



Very excited for this Thursday's PHPMiNDS about How to make digital technology more sustainable from @hanopcon

With the ongoing decline of the climate emergency, as well as the increased usage of cryptocurrencies, there's definitely something to think about in terms of how we improve our impact on this dying world
