Here’s the playground

Sometimes you have the local time in a string, and you need to convert it to other time zones. For example, I had the string “2016-12-20 11:57:34” in my local timezone “America/New_York” and I want to convert it to “America/Los_Angeles” and “UTC”.

time.ParseInLocation("2006-01-02 15:04:05", s, ny)

The above command will handle this. The full program is shown below. It’s probably easier to just run this from the playground.

package main

import (

func main() {

	ny, _ := time.LoadLocation("America/New_York")
	la, _ := time.LoadLocation("America/Los_Angeles")
	utc, _ := time.LoadLocation("UTC")

	s := "2016-12-20 11:57:34"
	t, _ := time.ParseInLocation("2006-01-02 15:04:05", s, ny)

	fmt.Println("NY Time", t)
	fmt.Println("UTC", t.In(utc))
	fmt.Println("LA", t.In(la))
