9. Defining datetime objects
Summary

Instruction

Probably the most useful objects from the datetime module are datetime objects. As you may guess, they combine date and time information. Take a look:

fra_mad_actual = datetime.datetime(2018, 12, 1, 9, 45, 0)
print(fra_mad_actual)

Result: 2018-12-01 09:45:00

We create a new datetime object by providing as many as six parameters: year, month, day, hour, minute, and second. You can also get the current point in time using the following code:

fra_mad_actual = datetime.datetime.today()

Naturally, the result will differ as time passes.

Exercise

We want to store the date and time of a budget review meeting in a variable named budget_review. The meeting is scheduled for 5 Oct 2018 at 1:30 PM. Create an appropriate datetime object and print the following:

Budget review is scheduled for {datetime}

Stuck? Here's a hint!

Remember that 1:30 PM is 13:30 in the 24-hour format!
