Python Dates and Times in Python (2014) Where on Earth do Timezones Make Sense? Datetime Awareness


it seems to me that I do every thing right (like in presentation video), however I get an error: "paris is not a datetime object"

import datetime

naive = datetime.datetime(2015, 10, 21, 4, 29)
pacific = datetime.timezone(datetime.timedelta(hours=-8))
hill_valley = datetime.datetime(2015, 10, 21, 4, 29, tzinfo=pacific)
paris = datetime.timezone(datetime.timedelta(hours=+1))

So your pacific and paris timezones are built correctly.

You really should use .replace() on hill_valley instead of rewriting the whole thing, but, grading-wise, it'll pass either way. paris, while a well-built timezone, isn't supposed to be a timezone. It's supposed to be hill_valley.astimezone() with an appropriate timezone.
