May I please get help on pytz conversions

Supposed to convert a timezone using pytz

timezone.py
import datetime

import pytz

starter = pytz.utc.localize(datetime.datetime(2015, 10, 21, 23, 29))
def to_timezone(time_string):
    time_string = starter.astimezone(pytz.timezone('US/Pacific'))
    return time_string

old question, looks like no one replies to these anymore =(

Seems like you are re-defining the argument 'time_string' right when it is passed through the to_timezone function.

try creating a new variable like "local_time" and change pytz.timezone('US/Pacific') to accept the 'time_string' argument. =)

hope this helps.

Worked for me. Thanks for helping.
