re: The Go way to parse strings into dates is pretty confusing unless you live in a small fraction of the world VIEW POST


The magic date... Wow! The first time I encountered it I was using Hugo the static site generator and for all I knew, I couldn't understand why my dates were all 00001 values and the likes. The Python example is perfect for an API that has this level of "dynamics". Having the magic date is a terrible thing in Go. That API takes with it a lot of newcomers into the debug ground.
