# NumPy: Convert numpy datetime64 to Timestamp

## NumPy DateTime: Exercise-7 with Solution

Write a NumPy program to convert numpy datetime64 to Timestamp.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

``````import numpy as np
from datetime import datetime
dt = datetime.utcnow()
print("Current date:")
print(dt)
dt64 = np.datetime64(dt)
ts = (dt64 - np.datetime64('1970-01-01T00:00:00Z')) / np.timedelta64(1, 's')
print("Timestamp:")
print(ts)
print("UTC from Timestamp:")
print(datetime.utcfromtimestamp(ts))
``````

Sample Output:

```Current date:
2017-04-01 08:01:12.722055
Timestamp:
1491033672.72
UTC from Timestamp:
2017-04-01 08:01:12.722055
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Decompose a collection:

Assume we have a function that returns a tuple of two values and we want to assign each value to a separate variable. One way is to use indexing as below:

```abc = (5, 10)
x = abc[0]
y = abc[1]
print(x, y)
```

Output:

```5 10
```

There is a better option that allows us to do the same operation in one line.

```x, y = abc
print(x, y)

```

Output:

```5 10
```

It can be extended to a tuple with more than 2 values or some other data structures such as lists or sets.

```x, y, z = {1, 2, 3}
print(x, y, z)
x, y, z = ['a', 'b', 'c']
print(x, y, z)
```

Output:

```1 2 3
a b c
```
