Now replace <YOURNAME> in the console.printf expression using the string variable formatter

I already did

Name.java
// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName = "Thomas";
console.printf("%s can code in java");

As oageletse90 said, using the string variable formatter, you can substitute the key %s with a String variable, which has to be declared inside the parentheses, after a coma. as the code below:

String firstName = "Thomas";

console.printf("%s can code in java", firstName);

Happy coding!

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console String firstName = "Thomas"; console.printf("%s can code in java", firstName);

Everything is ok, you only forgot to reference the %s that you have included on the paranthesis...
