Weekday of a Specific Date

Kedeisha June 16, 2023

Write a Python function that accepts a string representing a date and returns the day of the week for that date. Assume the date string is in the format ‘YYYY-MM-DD’.

Input Data: Your function should accept a single string representing a date.

You can complete this challenge in any IDE or get started in this Google ColabĀ notebook.

Explanation of Solution: The function get_weekday uses the strptime function from the datetime module to convert the date string to a datetime object. The strftime function is then used to format the datetime object as a string representing the day of the week (‘%A’).
