Bummer! 'name'

Example:

values = [{"name": "Michelangelo", "food": "PIZZA"}, {"name": "Garfield", "food": "lasagna"}]

string_factory(values)

["Hi, I'm Michelangelo and I love to eat PIZZA!", "Hi, I'm Garfield and I love to eat lasagna!"]

template = "Hi, I'm {name} and I love to eat {food}!"

def string_factory(dict): length = len(dict) - 1 for num in range(length): print("Hi, I'm {name} and I love to eat {food}!".format(dict[num],dict[num]))

values = [{"name": "Michelangelo", "food": "PIZZA"}, {"name": "Garfield", "food": "lasagna"}] string_factory(values)

I am getting an error named : Bummer: 'name'

You're supposed to be returning a list of strings. No where in this code do you create a list of strings. That's at least part of the problem.

Also, that wasn't a question. If you ask a question, I may have an answer. Right now you just gave an error report without even stating what the problem is.
