Python Dates and Times in Python (2014) Let's Build a Timed Quiz App Timestamp Ordering

I'm not sure how to solve this.

I am not sure I am getting this. I pass in *args for the function. I don't know if I full understand the POSIX bit or how to compare multiple POSIX arguments.

# If you need help, look up datetime.datetime.fromtimestamp()
# Also, remember that you *will not* know how many timestamps
# are coming in.
import datetime

def timestamp_oldest(*args): 
    return (datetime.datetime.fromtimestamp(*args)).sort()

Hello Clifford,

think about this *args like it could be one or more. =>"takes any number of POSIX timestamp arguments."

Inside of the methode

for i in args:

Even in the hint there talking about a sort() So use a list , add and sorting and give the "oldest" back.

I hope this will helps you.

Greetings Julian
