JavaScript JavaScript Basics Hello, JavaScript! Write JavaScript Statements

I'm entering console.log("Begin Program") but keep being told I'm not using console.log.

I wanna report what I think is a bug...

    <script src="app.js" type="javascript"></script>
console.log("Begin program");

Hi Gonzalo Blasco 👋

Thanks for reaching out and sharing your code! The code you've written in your app.js file looks good to me and should indeed pass the test. Unfortunately, something seems to be off with the tests that are being ran for the first step in the challenge.

The issue for this actually originates from the script tag you've written in the first task of the challenge. Looking at that line the type value you've provided is not a valid value, changing the value to be "text/javascript", or completely removing the attribute should fix the issue.

<script src="app.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


<script src="app.js"></script>

I'm sorry for the inconvenience, I'll bring this issue up with the team to update the tests for this challenge 🙂

Hope this helps, Happy Coding!

Ok, My bad was using type="javascript" instead of type="text/javascript", ups... thanks Ronald..
