how do you find your previously saved code?

I'm not sure where my workspace is and the lesson keeps taking me to a blank one.

Hi. This is a challenge question; asking you to write the code in the doc. But any saved code you would have would be in your workspaces (5th icon down on the left). You can have one of these open for reference as you take the code challenge. GL to you....

I think I found it! Thanks, David!

So, just to clarify, I have at least 2 workspaces? One in the challenge and one saved within workspaces? So the challenge is to do the code without going back to the video to check work?

The challenge is usually a made up scenario for you to answer. Most of the time its the same code that you just worked on in your workspaces from the lesson. workspaces are what you create and save as you go.

But the workspace in the lesson is not my saved workspace and the saved workspace doesn't have the challenge. Is there a way to save the code in the lesson from lesson to lesson? I have to copy and paste from my workspace? Or what am I not getting here?

Generally the challenges differ from the exercises at least slightly. So you probably can't just cut-and-paste an answer, or at least not all of it.

My understanding of the challenges is that they provide an opportunity to reinforce new knowledge by applying it. They typically don't require a significant amount of effort, so copying from previous exercises would normally not be necessary.

Thank you!
