About 3 weeks ago, we launched 2 different polls to ask you what workshops you wanted to attend before SymfonyLive New York and SymfonyCon Madrid. First, we want to thank all the people who participated in the poll, so many of you answered, thank you very much for your time!

Thanks to your votes, we were able to know which workshops were really interesting for you. A total of 4 brand new workshops will be organized at SymfonyCon Madrid. Two of them won unanimous support among both polls: Fabien's Symfony Best Practices and Building RESTful Applications with Symfony. These 2 workshops will be organized for the first time at SymfonyLive New York. Since all the new workshops are one-day workshops, we’ve created combo packages if you want to attend two of them. The workshop schedule at SymfonyLive New York is now online. The number of seats is limited so the faster you register the better it is.

The SymfonyCon Madrid workshops poll revealed 4 most-wanted workshops! In addition to Fabien's Symfony Best Practices and Building RESTful Applications with Symfony, the other two workshops the majority of you voted for are: Profiling PHP Applications and Deploying Symfony Applications. All these 4 new workshops will be organized there on top of the regular Symfony workshops. The entire workshop schedule at SymfonyCon Madrid is available on the conference website.

As we announced it when we launched both polls, for each workshop selected in the poll, we drew one name among the people who voted for the workshop selected. I’m very pleased to announce the winners of our lucky draw. Each winner will gain a free ticket to attend the workshop he or she voted for! Congratulations to all of them!
