I’m getting Hello, my name is ${this.name} instead of my name. What’s wrong? Am I using this incorrectly?

Answer

In order to interpolate the name key into the string, we need to use proper ES6 template literal syntax here. The ${myVariable} syntax doesn’t work without using backticks (`) to start and end the string, instead of quotation marks or single quotes.
