The objectives are simple:

  • Write a function that returns the string "Hello, World!".
  • Run the test suite and make sure that it succeeds.
  • Submit your solution and check it at the website.

If everything goes well, you will be ready to fetch your first real exercise.


For installation and learning resources, refer to the exercism help page.

To run the provided tests, you will need make. Open a terminal window and run the following from the exercise directory:
