I have done this just as the instructor has and I can't see any difference. It says I'm not leaving the console.printf

Can somebody help me?

Is this exercise broken, it keeps saying keep the console statement intact.

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console

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

Hi Jade,

this is a bug inside of the workspace :)

Your code is fine! Just delete the space between console.printf and ("%s can code in Java!", firstName);


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


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

I have no explanation for this weirdness ...
