Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java Strings, Variables, and Formatting

I am not sure why my code isn't working.

I am in the Basics of Java and it is basically me, to type my name. However, it isn;t working.

Name.java
// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName = "ItsCrystalClear";
console.printf("%s", firstName);

String firstName = "ItsCrystalClear";
console.printf("%s can code in Java!", firstName);

Try adding in the "can code in Java!" part of the string, like this:

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName = "Federico";
console.printf("%s can code in Java!", firstName);

Hope that helps.

Oh, thanks
