About Thomas

Thomas Clowes

My name is Thomas Clowes.

I am a 31 year old software engineer from the United Kingdom.

I own and operate Double Negative which builds multi platform web applications like:

  • Running.org - A running race directory, and selection of useful running tools.
  • TrainingPlan.com - Our training app to help keep you accountable, and help you to achieve your running goals.

I am a big fan of PHP, even though many hate it. Used well, it is extremely powerful.

I build a lot of front end things with ReactJS.

I know a lot about domain names, and the domain name industry. In a previous life I worked at what is now Uniregistry (which is now owned by GoDaddy). I helped build what is now their market place as well as their now closed Affiliate Program.

I like hacking away at mini projects. One of which imports all my Instagram posts to this blog such that you can view everything (related to me) in one place.

I use this blog to write about things that interest me. I discuss a wide range of subject areas, not limited to software. The tags functionality is your friend :)

One of those things is running (as you may have guessed by now). I am a marathon runner. I like to post about my training and targets. My current 'big' target is Comrades 2021 (after the 2020 edition was cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic - boo !).. or Tomrades (as I like to call it). You can follow my journey here.

Thanks for visiting !
