Variable & String in Swift 2.0 Basics
In Challenge Task 1 of 2 in Swift 2.0 Basics, it says to declare a variable named "language" and to create a string "swift". Here is what I typed:
var = "language" str = "swift"
Got error message. What's wrong??
// Enter your code below var = "language" str = "swift"

The challenge is asking for something a little different.
The syntax when you create a variable goes like this
var myVariableName // enter var followed by the variable name var myString = "Enter String" // you can also initialize it with a String in one step var myVariable: String // if you do not initialize it, you have to specify the type
Applying the above to the code challenge and you end up with this
// Enter your code below var language = "Swift" // declare variable called language and assign it the string "Swift" language = "Objective-C" // assign a new value to the language variable
I hope that helps,
PS: Thanks to the awesome resources on Team Treehouse, I launched my first app.
Now you can practice writing Swift code directly on your iPhone :-)
