That code should have gotten you through Task 1.

Task 2 is looking for you to create (code) a new view in the views.py file. If you remember from the videos the boilerplate code for creating a new view in Django is:

def view_name(request):
    # You can do something here for your view
    return #This is what needs to be returned...

The task is asking us to return a basic string through the HttpResponseobject. Check the video again if you have forgotten how to accomplish that.

Happy coding and post back if you are still stuck.
