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 .

#Kubernetes peeps - is there a way to mount a Secrets volume as read-write and allow an application to write to it? I'm migrating code that expects a filesystem to persist secret changes to and am not sure if I'm trying to avoid rewriting too much?

Very excited for tonight's #TechNott with Rizwana Khan and Daryl Cecile - they do some amazing stuff with Project Function and we're all very lucky to get to hear some more about what they do to make tech a better, more diverse place ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

So Anna Dodson and I may have bought another set of mugs at the weekend.... When a third of your mugs are cat related you know you have an unhealthy obsession with your little fluffy child ๐Ÿ˜น

Two mugs sitting on the side, one with "cat dad" and one with "cat mum" and each with a smiling cat mouth

Is anyone using #gitlab's Auto DevOps with a Maven/Gradle multimodule project? Thinking about maybe giving it a go, with deployment to GKE for ease of management of my services, but wanna find out if its suitable first, and how to pass secrets that would be in an application.properties on the host. Or I guess, do I need to rewire the app instead?

Has anyone managed to use #Wiremock in a Java app and call the handlers without needing an HTTP server before? I've got it using Reflection but would prefer alternatives if possible ๐Ÿ˜…

Has anyone written #Java #Cucumber tests using cucumber-picocontainer recently? Looking at how to set up an object for a class that you don't control? Finding I can't easily instantiate it
