There is nothing wrong

String firstName = "Ahti"; console.printf("My name is %s", firstName); is my code and its just saying check your spelling

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

This worked, there is nothing wrong with that but the task asks you to print out "<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!" not "My name is <YOUR NAME>"
