Timezone String Challenge
i dont get what the task is asking me to do
import datetime import pytz starter = pytz.utc.localize(datetime.datetime(2015, 10, 21, 23, 29))
I was able to figure it out after reading the following code in this stack overflow:
from datetime import datetime import pytz utc_time = datetime.utcnow() tz = pytz.timezone('America/St_Johns') utc_time =utc_time.replace(tzinfo=pytz.UTC) #replace method st_john_time=utc_time.astimezone(tz) #astimezone method print(st_john_time)
First it is asking you to create a function named
to_timezone with a timezone name as a parameter:
Next you are to convert
starter to this timezone and return the result. Here you can use
astimezone but it has a timezone as a parameter where you are currently passing in the just the name. You can get the timezone from the name by using
If you want I can post my solution but I think you can get it from here.
