Good Challenge: Symfony Askeet Tutorial

There's a reason for the challenge. The Symfony project offers a tutorial modeled after the advent calendar: 1 exercise per day for 24 days (24 days before Christmas). It suggest that each exercise should take about one hour (average). Some of them were quite simple and they took me 15 minutes. However, some of them took me 3 to 4 hours. The reason: The tutorial was written using version 0.6.x and I am using 0.7.x. There are a number of fundamental changes between the two series. Some instructions refer to files or functions that do not exists. It forced me to look into the Symfony core code and debug which was highly instructive.
