I see two quick things. Your slash is going the wrong way it is \n. Also don't forget to pass in your firstName variable to the printf function so it knows what to replace the %s with.

I switched from Mozilla to Explorer and It works fine now. I refresh and it didn't work again Thanks

String firstName = "Dan"; console.printf("%s\n", firstName);

Bummer! Check the spelling of your argument to the printf method

The challenge instructions read:

Call the printf function on the console object and make it print out "<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!"

Your code prints out "<YOUR NAME>".

Thanks , It was my email.
