Pascal Borreli came up with a great idea to involve the symfony developer community and advance the development of the framework. The event is called one-day-one-ticket and it will give monthly prizes to the developer that fixes the most bugs in symfony. While it is still a good idea to contribute to the community anyway and get your merit badges, a little extra incentive always helps. The winner will be announced on the first of each month and some of prizes include a symfony book from Fabien Potencier, another one of Doctrine from Jonathan Wage, free hosting credit or Amazon gift certificates (these are from us) and a PHP t-shirt from We encourage everyone to participate, community involvement is the key to the success of a any project. You can also follow the event on twitter.
