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 an maintainer for a number of Open Source projects, including oapi-codegen, and my most recent passion project, dependency-management-data (DMD).

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 .

 Note

Whenever I see a profile view on LinkedIn from someone who works at a company I used to work at, I always wonder what it means. Like, are you interested in who was in the git blame? Did you find something I've done, or heard a story about me and want to know more?

I guess we'll never know 🤷🏽‍♂️

"Men are dangerous" is 100% patriarchal rhetoric. The patriarchy does everything it can to train men to be dangerous. It creates a toxic version of masculinity that only profits and privileges men who choose to be dangerous. It does everything it can to put men into positions where they can be dangerous. Which means that danger is artificially constructed. Men are not dangerous because they're male. Men are not dangerous because they're masculine. Masculinity and manhood are not dangerous things. The dangerous version of masculinity sold by the patriarchy is a social construct that can, in fact, be opted out of. Men and masculine people can construct a masculinity that is not toxic, that does not promote violence, that is centered around healthy relationships and communication and helping others. Building a healthy, vibrant vision of masculinity is absolutely a part of feminism. I'm not saying it needs to be done by women - do not twist this into a claim that I'm attempting to burden women with remaking masculinity. Men can be feminists. Men who are feminists are eager and willing and actively taking part in the act of ripping masculinity away from the patriarchy and reforming it into something new. #feminism #intersectionalFeminism #transFeminism

If you got this far and are a software engineer who wants to get involved in making the web just a tiny bit more accessible, I’ll provide you one tip. Do not immediately reach for some form of automation. Every dev I’ve met who wants to learn about accessibility, squirrels away and comes back to me with a goal to fully automate accessibility testing through some automated tool or a whole new suite of cypress tests. Instead, talk to people. Understand their barriers. I don’t want you to disaapear for a week and come back having written a post about how you realised how bad the web was after using a screen reader for forty eight hours. It’s a good insight, but you’re not a screen reader power user, and it’s just one more “wow, being disabled is hard???” blog post to add to the pile.

I'm at the point where people complaining about projects that are underfunded & consequently understaffed not moving "fast enough" is just going to start resulting in blocks. I'm not gonna waste my time arguing with you because thing's didn't happen at your pace. Seriously, these projects take an absolute tonne of work. You want stuff to move faster, start throwing money at it so people can dedicate full time towards doing things.

Attached: 4 images After god knows how many years of work, the people behind the #StarWars 4K project have released the final installment. For those who don't know: a group of dedicated restorers, unhappy with the reworked Special Editions, hunted down, scanned and restored the original 35mm theatrical prints of the first Star Wars trilogy in Ultra High Definition. They're better than the official blurays. Incredible work, not only in terms of authentic content but even the picture quality is superior.
