I thought I am using the operator
I am not sure why this is incorrect
new_name = (new_name || "Daniel") puts new_name

Hi Daniel Wise,
The challenge wants us to create a variable called name that is conditionally set to a string containing your name.
name ||= "Daniel"
Hope this helps! If you have any further questions feel free to ask!
