so I added ! to forecastURL.

now the data is ok. but this coding challenge. I can never pass it.

import Foundation
let treehouseBaseURL = NSURL(string: "https://api.teamtreehouse.com/")
let courseURL = NSURL(string: "/course/\(courseID)", relativeToURL: treehouseBaseURL)

Here is what I used to pass it looks like NSData.dataWithContentsOfURL was deprecated in Xcode 6.1. The third constant should be...

let courseData = NSData(contentsOfURL: courseURL, options: nil, error: nil)

then delete this line

let //courseData = NSData (contentsOfURL: courseURL!)
