Finally, convert the string stored in role to uppercase letters. The final msg string should look similar to this: "Carl

let firstName='Arya';
let lastName='Patel';
let role = 'developer';
let msg = firstName + ' ' + lastName + ':'+role.toUpperCase()+".";

Testing in a workspace can only reveal syntax errors, but a challenge must also produce a specific result .

The instructions said: The final msg string should look similar to this: "Carlos Salgado: DEVELOPER" — note that there should be a space after the colon, and no period at the end.

Im writing my code as it is

let firstName = "Jerry"; let lastName = "Pena"; let role = 'developer';

let msg = firstName + ' ' + lastName + ': ' + role.toUpperCase() + '.';


for some reason it's incorrect, I have written the same code on the workspace and checked the result in the console, and the results print as they must = Jerry Pena: DEVELOPER.

Cant recognize the mistake.

For future issues, always start a new question instead of adding one as an "answer" to someone else's.

But in this case, the issue is that the challenge did not ask for a period to be added after the role.
