I am dealing with dates in Python and I need to convert them to UTC timestamps to be used
>>> d = datetime.date(2011,01,01) >>> datetime.datetime.utcfromtimestamp(time.mktime(d.timetuple())) datetime.datetime(2010, 12, 31, 23, 0)
Converting the date object first to datetime also does not help. I tried the example at this link from, but:
from pytz import utc, timezone from datetime import datetime from time import mktime input_date = datetime(year=2011, month=1, day=15)
and now either:
So general question: how can I get a date converted to seconds since epoch according to UTC?
