iOS Swift Basics (retired) Types Printing Results

I only get Print (value: T) not Print (object) so when I type anything into the parenthesis it isn't recognized.

you should clear the parenthesis on the print command. Xcode "hints" at what some commands should include, but that's not always what you want. To print a simple string for example you only use.

print("Hello!")

or to print a variable

var hello = "Hello World!"
print(hello)

also, notice that the "p" in print is not capitalized
