Create Two String Variables?

Create Two String Variables - The first will be named 'firstName' with a value of 'Rasmus' and the second will be named 'lastName' with a value of 'Lerdorf'.

Ive watched the video 3 times and dont see this covered as there is only one string in the hello name workspace/example?

Really take a look at the video. Try not to follow it verbatim. Think outside the box. Keep your chin up. You got it slugger. A journey of 1000 miles starts with one step. Never swim within 45 minutes of eating, you'll cramp. I love you.

It's looking for you to first create two different strings.

$firstName = "Ramus";
$lastName = "Lerdorf";

Later on in the challenge you'll combine those two separate variables into a third variable. The goal of the challenge is to get you thinking in terms of variables that can be used/manipulated later instead of hard coded values everywhere.

$firstName = "Rasmus"; $lastName = "Lerdorf";
