Your Hour of Code word-for-the-day is: Syntax. The syntax of a computer language is the set of rules that defines the combinations of symbols that are considered to be a correctly structured document or fragment in that language. Spoken languages have syntax too. Spanish, Mandarin, French, Latin, you name it, all languages have syntax. Computers don't have human intelligence, so syntax has to be followed very strictly when coding. If someone makes a minor Yoda-style syntax error while speaking to a human in English, "Mmm, Hungry I am." We know they mean, "I am hungry." A computer on the other hand can't handle even the most minor syntax errors in a language like Java or C++. When you are just getting started in coding you will find that many of your errors end up being caused by missing or misplaced single characters like semi-colons, brackets, or commas. Finished this message is! Code for an Hour, you should!
Who wants to be a little bit happier?

If your answer was "ME", "ME", "ME", then come to the place where it can actually happen: come to CONFESSION.
