Pandas Datetime: Manipulate and convert date times with timezone information

Pandas Datetime: Exercise-16 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to manipulate and convert date times with timezone information.

Sample Solution :

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
dtt = pd.date_range('2018-01-01', periods=3, freq='H')
dtt = dtt.tz_localize('UTC')
print("\nFrom UTC to America/Los_Angeles:")
dtt = dtt.tz_convert('America/Los_Angeles')

Sample Output:

DatetimeIndex(['2018-01-01 00:00:00+00:00', '2018-01-01 01:00:00+00:00',
               '2018-01-01 02:00:00+00:00'],
              dtype='datetime64[ns, UTC]', freq='H')

From UTC to America/Los_Angeles:
DatetimeIndex(['2017-12-31 16:00:00-08:00', '2017-12-31 17:00:00-08:00',
               '2017-12-31 18:00:00-08:00'],
              dtype='datetime64[ns, America/Los_Angeles]', freq='H')

Python: Tips of the Day

Merges two or more lists into a list of lists, combining elements from each of the input lists based on their positions


def tips_merge(*args, fill_value=None):
  max_length = max([len(lst) for lst in args])
  result = []
  for i in range(max_length):
      args[k][i] if i < len(args[k])
	  else fill_value for k in range(len(args))
  return result
print(tips_merge(['x', 'y'], [1, 2], [True, False])) 
print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False])) 
print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False], fill_value = '_')) 


[['x', 1, True], ['y', 2, False]]
[['x', 1, True], [None, 2, False]]
[['x', 1, True], ['_', 2, False]]
