I’m trying to run this code

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
  heistReady := true
  if heistReady {
    fmt.Println("Let's Go!")
  }
}

but I’m getting an error in the console:

\bash\bin go: command not found

What may be the case here?

A bug, from the course. Your code is fine.

I’d suggest starting over by resetting the exercise. Or try refreshing the page.

you have to add the “heistReady := false” from the 2nd exercise before your if statement for it to work, it’s definitely an error from the course. The downside is that we don’t get to see what it does when you change from true to false. I believe we can just try it on a different exercise page and see the result there instead.

Hello,

The bug still persist

You need to run the following code`package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
	heistReady := true
  
	heistReady = false
  
  if heistReady {
    fmt.Print("Let's Go!")
  }
}

On step one you need to do

//Inside the main function,
//add an if statement that checks heistReady and if it’s true,
//print the string "Let's Go!"

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
	heistReady := true

	if heistReady {
		fmt.Println("Let's Go!")
	}
}

and then on step two you need to do

//Inside the main function,
//add an if statement that checks heistReady and if it’s true,
//print the string "Let's Go!"

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
	heistReady := false

	if heistReady {
		fmt.Println("Let's Go!")
	}
}

or at least that was what I do pass this without issue.
