Daylight “Saving” Time

July 11, 2022

I’ve been working on a data-oriented project which mainly uses Python and the pandas library. One of the tasks I was given was to convert times in the data back and forth between DST and UTC. Sounds simple enough, right? As with many programming tasks, there were difficulties with input/output formatting, broken tests, and more. After nearly a month of tribulations, I think it’s safe to say that most software developers would vote for eliminating the time change! I have learned a lot more about pandas, testing, and critical problem solving, so it certainly wasn’t time wasted :)
