Jamie Tanna's profile image

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

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.

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