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 .

Listened to Rug pull, not cool! (Changelog & Friends #40)
Post details
If Changelog News had an extended edition, this might be it! Jerod & Adam discuss Hashicorp’s Cease and Desist letter, Redis getting forked, Boston Dymanics’ scary cool new robot, Justin Searls’ extensive use of the Apple Vision Pro, Thorston Ball moving from Vim to Zed, Firefox becoming hard to use, Beeper joining...

 Note

For the last ~7 weeks on-and-off rewriting the documentation for oapi-codegen which has needed a fresh version for a bit of time. On top of that, I've spent pretty much the last two days solidly finishing it off, and am very glad to have just merged it!

Documentation can be difficult to do - especially if you're redoing it all in one go - but am hoping it's in a much better place for new and existing users alike!

Also introduces a CONTRIBUTING.md for the first time, and I ended up adding 14 new examples to the examples directory because I couldn't quite remember how things worked 😅

Did MKBHD ruin an AI company and their product because of their negative review of it? No, the bad AI product ruined itself and its company. Just because someone created a business, found funding and created a thing doesn’t mean they should get instant recognition, and a pass for crappy stuff. Entrepreneurs aren’t your friends, they aren’t superior, they don’t deserve to be coddled. When they make sh*t products, they should be told that they made sh*t. MKBHD did their job.

Listened to Alexis Richardson, Weaveworks | IT Ops Query by PodBean Development 
Post details
Alexis Richardson co-founded a company in 2014 called Weaveworks, which created an open source GitOps project called Flux CD. In February, the company ceased operations, despite having gained new customers in 2023. Among the events that precipitated the closure of the business were acquisition talks with a larger company that fell through "at the 11th hour," according to a post by Richardson on LinkedIn. Weaveworks is one example of a company associated with a flourishing open source project – Flux CD continues under the CNCF – that ultimately couldn't make the business side work. Richardson gives his take on what happened with the company and how the CNCF could help businesses like it in the future, as well as what he's got planned next.

Opposing genocide isn’t antisemitic. Saying that opposing genocide is antisemitic is antisemitic. You know what’s inhumane? Genocide. You know who’s committing genocide? Israel. You have zero moral standing to assess me. Those who commit and are complicit in genocide never do. So yes, most definitely, goodbye. #israel #palestine #gaza #apartheid #ethnicCleansing #genocide https://digitalcourage.social/@sl007/112268942430540187
