I have no idea of what you expect.

app.js
var answer;
 answer = prompt("What is the best programming language?");
if (answer==='Javascript')
  alert("You are correct");

Hi Thibaut,

Strings in javascript are case sensitive. 'Javascript' is not the same as 'JavaScript' Notice the capital 'S'

That's the only issue with your code.

And i'm serious when i say "what do you expect", you ask something, you got it, and still challenge is not valid, do you want a parsing so any string containing the word "javascript" in it will work? Considering i havent see something like this in the previous video i doubt it...

Oh i didnt notice the S, thanks very much, not use to see majuscules everywhere i didnt see it T_T Also if someone has a perfect code and still cant validate, remember that they are expecting us to put curly braces on single statement too....
