Can someone help me out with the code

class ViewController: UIViewController {

    let blue = UIColor(red: 0, green: 0, blue: 255, alpha: 1.0)

  override func viewDidLoad() {
      // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
    view.backgroundColor = UIColor.blue

  override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
      // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.

Nothing is wrong really, it’s just that the challenge specifically say that the property should be named “blueColor”, yours is named “blue”. So the code is correct...

Thnx buddy!
