How do I define a string variable named firstName, that stores your name? I need to set the value to your name.
I am really confused, even though I watched the video 3 times now. Any help would be appreciated!
// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console String firstname ="firstName"; console.printf ("Hi, my name is %s\n", firstName)

Hi there! You're doing just fine! For Step 1 of the challenge they've only asked you to declare a
String variable named
firstName. Instead, you've declared a variable named
firstname. Note the capitalization. You can omit the
console.printf for Step 1. The reason you're getting a compiler error is because you've forgotten a semicolon on the end of the
printf statement. Remember, all statements in Java must end with a semicolon.
Challenges are very strict and you generally must do as they say to the letter. This includes spelling, capitalization, punctuation and even spacing! Also, try not to do anything the challenge doesn't explicitly ask for. Even if functional, it can cause the challenge to fail.
Hope this helps!
