First step

languages board

Choose a language that you like, want to learn, or are familiar with. It will be used to present your first challenge.

Your first challenge

This is an entry-level task that you must solve to prove your dedication and commitment to learning. Let's see.

first task

The task states: "The code does not execute properly. Try to figure out why." Let's take a closer look. Of course! A tiny detail is missing that is causing a compilation error! Put it in the correct place, fix the code, and click SUBMIT. The server will process the solution and soon you will receive the test report. Don't worry if you made a mistake and your answer is incorrect! Click TRY AGAIN and fix your solution.


If your answer is correct, you will experience the best thing in the life of a coder [citation needed]: green tests! Congratulations!
