node command not working in Atom

I'm using Atom for this tutorial and the node two.js command is not working. I opened dev tools from Atom and entered node two.js in the console, it says Uncaught ReferenceError: two is not defined. Am I doing it wrongs? Thank you!

Node must be run from the command line. So if you are on Windows, you'll want to make sure you have Nodejs installed and use Command Prompt. From Mac or Linux you would use Terminal. Node doesn't work in the console in Atom or your browser.

If he say an uncaught reference error , then somehow, he does have node.
