Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with dates and times, part of Learning Go.
Dates and times are managed in Go with the time package.…Its time type encapsulates everything…you need for both dates and times, including…math operations, time zones and so on.…There are a few different functions to create time objects.…The date function lets you pass in specific information…for the year, month, day and so on.…The now function returns the current date and time.…The parse function lets you parse a string and so on.…I'll demonstrate a few of these capabilities…in this file, datesAndTimes.go.…
First, I'll import the time package.…Then, in the main function, I'll create a variable…that I'll simply name, t for time…and I'll get its value by calling…the date function, with time.Date.…I'll pass in the year. I'll set it as 2009.…Then I'll use a constant for the month, time.November.…Then I'll pass in 10 for the day of the month,…23 for the hour, 0's for the minutes,…the seconds and the nanoseconds…and a constant of time.UTC for the location.…
Then I'll output that information using fmt.Printf.…I'll use a string of "Go launched at"…
