String firstname = "Joshua"

    console.printf("Hello my name is %s",firtsname)

You need a semicolon at the end of each statement and to also correct the typo in 'firstname'

Also when I studied java we always did public static void main(String[] args) at the beginning where you have Strings [] args

I don't know if this last thing makes a difference but try to correct the first things and see if that fixes it.

Cheers!
