Through Wales without a Tardis

Ah, Wales. The country with the most impressive and baffling language. It was even used in the Bosnian conflict, where a Welsh regiment used the language for as a way to “encrypt” communication.

A decade of development

What happens in a decade? With regards to the Internet, quite a lot. In 2007 we didn’t have smartphones, apps, tablets or responsive design. Now, ten years later, there are 2.5 billion smartphones in the world!
