import (
	"time"
	"fmt"
)

Use multiply to convert units to a time.Duration


d := 2 * time.Hour + 30 * time.Minute
fmt.Println(d)
2h30m0s

Using Equal method corrects for timezones


x := time.Now()
y := x
if(x.Equal(y)){
	fmt.Println("Equal!")
} else { 
	fmt.Println("Not equal!")
}
Equal!

Get current time with timezone


fmt.Println(time.Now())
2021-07-09 20:50:46.11267622 +0800 AWST m=+69.426266556

Very cool way of specifying date format, 1 represents seconds, 6 represents year, and 7 is timezone. Everything else is intuitive


tEarly := time.Parse("06-05-04 03:02:01", "20-01-01 01:01:01")
tLate := time.Parse("06-05-04 03:02:01", "20-01-01 12:01:01")
fmt.Println(tEarly)
2020-01-01 01:01:01 +0000 UTC

Print a portion of time


fmt.Println(tEarly.Year())
2020

Compare two times (before, after, equal)


fmt.Println(tEarly.Before(tLate))
true

Return the time elapsed between two dates


fmt.Println()
