from django.contrib import admin

    url(r'^$', views.hello_world),

Hi Zishen,

Please ensure that you always use markdown to properly format your code when submitting a question. You can find a link to the markdown cheatsheet below the text entry box when you are creating/editing a question.

I was having this same problem and found that my workspace was missing some text from the preloaded code in the urls.py file.

  1. Was missing "include" form this line:

    from django.conf.urls import include, url

  2. I also saw that my views.py file was in the pycache folder and not the learning_site folder.
