    Print was changed in Python 3 to be a built-in function rather than a keyword signalling a special statement. The way to do this in Python 3 is print("Hey", x). There are many other differences between Python 2 and 3 that you should probably familiarize yourself with if you intend to continue using a Python 2 tutorial with Python 3.

    In python3 print returns None
    That explains the source of the None in the error message.

    (and of course in python 2 print is a statement, and statements don't have values.)

    Ideally (Python3) it should be ...
    Code:
    x = input("Enter name: ")
    print("Hey {}".format(x))
