iOS Protocols in Swift Protocol Basics Declaring a Protocol

Broken code challenge?

My code, the declaration of a protocol with the name and age properties, is failing to pass the "check work" routine. I'm pretty sure it's exactly what it needs to be...

protocol User { var name: String {get} var age: Int {get set} }

it's complaining that I do not have a property named "name" of type String. I believe this is bugged. Thanks

protocol User {
  var name: String {get}
  var age: Int {get set}

If you add a space before and after the get set key words you will pass.

protocol User {
  var name: String { get }
  var age: Int { get set }

It’s written like this in the Swift documentation, haven’t figured out why.
