I am using qgis2.6 version and new to pyQGIS. I tried to load a vector file using python console in qgis. I don't know where I am wrong. The layer was not loaded and does not show any error too. Help would be appreciated.The code which i tried is below.
wb = QgsVectorLayer('C:\Users\new\Desktop\PyQGIS\pyqgis_data\world_borders.shp', 'world_borders', 'ogr')
