Date String to Date Object Conversion

Kedeisha June 16, 2023

Write a Python function that accepts a string representing a date and converts it into a datetime.date object. Assume that the date string is in the format ‘YYYY-MM-DD’.

date_string = ‘2023-06-16’ 

Explanation of Solution: The function date_conversion uses the strptime method from the datetime module to convert a string to a datetime object. The method requires the date string and the format of the date string. In this case, the format is ‘%Y-%m-%d’, where ‘%Y’ represents a four-digit year, ‘%m’ represents a two-digit month, and ‘%d’ represents a two-digit day. After the conversion, .date() is used to return a date object.
