Call the printf method on the console object and make it write out "<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!"

This is what I've done: String firstName = "Tommaso"; console.printf("Hello, my name is %s" , firstName);

but there's something wrong!!! Can you help me? Thanks

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName = "Tommaso";
console.printf("Hello, my name is %s" , firstName);

The instructions say: make it write out "YOUR NAME can code in Java!", but you are writing something else. Change your code to:

String firstName = "Tommaso";
console.printf("%s can code in java!" , firstName);
