I am not sure where I am going wrong with this task. It keeps giving me an error.

let firstName = "Mackenzie";
let lastName = "Byrne";
let role = 'developer';
let msg = firstName + ' ' + lastName + ': ' + role + '.';

Hi Mackenzie,

Take the period off from the end (and the plus sign before it). The period was just to end the instruction's sentence. It was not part of the code. Having it in evidently messes up the code checker.

Hope this helps!
