hey guys im confused here I keep getting the error "int" object has no starter attribute

import datetime

def delorean(ahead):
    starter = datetime.datetime(2015, 10, 21, 16, 29)
    return starter.replace(hour=ahead.starter+ahead)

1 Answer

The argument passed to the function delorean is an integer, so the part of your last line where you have "ahead.starter" is giving you the error - integer doesn't have an attribute of starter.

I don't remember the method covered in the lesson, but you can look into the timedelta function that's part of the datetime module. That will allow you to add an integer number of hours to a datetime.
