Question

I’m not getting an error but it isn’t printing out the variable, instead it prints out My name is myName. My favorite city is myCity.. What’s wrong?

Answer

So remember, you need to use ${VARIABLE_NAME}, not just VARIABLE_NAME in the string. JavaScript doesn’t know what’s a variable name in your string unless you add in the ${}, at which point it replaces the ${} with whatever the string value is of what’s inside the ${} into the outer string.
