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.

#Morph has been very surprised to find himself outside this morning, and has been quite insistent that we let him back in, as he's not quite sure how to do it 😂

This is how I feel about hackathons. I was able to spend my weekends learning things - like building things with others - that my uni course wouldn't have been able to teach me cause there was a tonne of theory I rarely use 🤷🏽‍♂️
