im not exactly sure where I'm supposed to put the spacing? I tried between firstName and lastName varibles, but no luck.

let firstName = "Ethan";
let lastName = "Gonzalez";
let role = 'developer';
let msg = firstName + lastName + role;

every time i submit this answer I get an error that I should: Make sure you're adding one space (' ') between firstName and lastName.

so within the quotation marks there should be a space instead of this ‘without space’ it would be “ with space"

you will need quotes for static strings to insert spacing and/or punctuation between the terms

an example would be....

let dogName = 'bella';
let breed = 'lab mix';

let x = dogName + " " + ":" breed;
