While storing the date and time into database, we first convert it to timestamp and then store it. Our task is to convert the date to timestamp and print it.
import datetime import time date_str = '30/11/2020' temp = datetime.datetime.strptime(date_str, "%d/%m/%Y") op_timestamp = datetime.datetime.timestamp(temp) print("The converted date to timestamp is: ", op_timestamp)
In approach 1, we have used timetuple() function. By using strptime() method, the input string is converted to date object and by using timetuple() we have converted the date object to tuple. At last we used mktime() to convert the tuple to timestamp.
In approach 2 we have used timestamp() function. We have stored the input date value in a variable and converted it to date object. We have used timestamp() on converted date object to convert it into timestamp value and returned the value.
