What is good in stress? you may ask…

PHPyths Buster: End of the project

Time to speed the things up!

The series becomes a little too long, so its time to the drastic movement.

The application is working now. Here I’ll describe how to add a new note and set reminder as done. I think, that this will be a good foundation for extending the application.
