Typed the code below 

first_name =gets.chomp

the blue dial is spinning once I hit submit but it's not telling me if I followed the instruction correctly. Stuck on this part of the lesson now as the blue dial spins! Any ideas?


#2

Tried putting first_name = gets.chomp as line 2 under
1 print "What's your first name?"

But again, though that prints out in the right hand box the blue dial just keeps on spinning

It is spinning because it is waiting for input from you.

You wrote code to display a question and get the user's answer.

Answer the question in the terminal and press enter.

Thanks so much for replying. I didn't realise I was to write in that right box! Is working now :slight_smile:
