What is the proper way to input the message? as I understood it should be either console.write(Im a Programmer) or alert

If you want to display something into a webpage the correct syntax is
console object does not have a write method, instead the console has a log method as the console is used for logging information. Alert's will give information to the user in a browser environment but it will not write to the page, it will give an 'alert popup' or 'alert dialog' that normally requires action for it to be dismissed.

Hiya Gianfranco! Your question is a bit obscure coz "alert()" or "console.log" "outputs" something to the screen or console. And it should be "document.write()", not "console.write()"And im pretty sure "Im a Programmer" needs to be a screen. So yeah you need to make sure you're outputting a string. Do that and your challenge will pass, (:
