I was following along with Craig and when I came to the variables video, my code will not update to Hello Craig.

I am having the same problem. It continues to say Hello, World and will not update with my name and will also not update my "is learning Python code" in the console.

print("Hello, Jess") print ("Jess is learning Python")

If you are running in Treehouse Workspaces, be sure the file is saved. If there is a dot next to the filename on the tab, it is not saved.

  • while in the file, type Ctrl-s to save, or
  • above file tab, select File -> Save

Then execute in the console window by typing at the $ prompt:

$ python hello.py

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
