Hey there Nils!

Your code needs to say "<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!" - exactly that. Your code only will print "Nils" to the console. Below I've written the correct answer out. You were close, just read it a bit more carefully next time!

String firstName = "Mike";
console.printf("%s can code in Java!", firstName);

Thanks mate!!
