How to deal with Date & Time Basics in Python?

This recipe helps you deal with Date & Time Basics in Python

This data science python tutorial does the following: 1. Imports the necessary libraries for date-time manipulation. 2. Filters out date, month and year using functions. 3. Use of delta function in context of timeseries. 4. Arithmetic transformation on timestamped data.

    # Add twelve days to the time
    print(); print(start + timedelta(12))
