my code is correct but it gives me an error cannot read property "1" null

let firstName = "Linden"; let lastName = "Stephens"; let role = "developer"; let msg = firstName + " " + lastName + ":" + role ;

let firstName = "Linden";
let lastName = "Stephens";
let role = "developer";
let msg = firstName + " " + lastName ":" + role ;

Hi Linden,

great job so far, just two tiny mistakes:

1) You forgot the "+" after lastName (that produced the error)

2) Between the colon and the role there is a space

Hope that helps. If not let me know!

Blessings from Berlin and happy java-scripting, Nils
