PyNash: datetime in Python: What Time is it Anyway?

Emma's Bistro Cafe
11 Lea Ave
Nashville, TN 37210, US (map)



Welcome to 2017, Nashville Pythonistas!

For our first meeting of 2017, PyNash Co-organizer Greg Back will help us demystify some of the tricker things about datetime objects in Python. He'll provide an overview of dates, times, and timezones, and why they can cause problems in real life and in real Python programs. Solutions to common problems and a few helpful hints will be provided, using both the standard library and third-party packages like pytz and python-dateutil.

Before Greg's talk, John Berryman will give an introduction to a new mentoring/social learning initiative we're exploring called Penny University.
