Heads up... You've reached locked video content where the transcript will be shown as obfuscated text.

In the Java Date-Time library, there’s several classes you can use to store a date and time. The most important ones are LocalDate, LocalTime, and one more class that combines these two classes into one, called LocalDateTime.

val myBirthDay = LocalDate.of(1999, Month.DECEMBER, 29)
println("myBirthDay: $myBirthDay")
val birthDayOfTheWeek = myBirthDay.dayOfWeek
println("You're born on: $birthDayOfTheWeek")
val alarm = LocalTime.of(7, 30)
println("meetingTime: $alarm")
val reminder = LocalDateTime.of(2022, Month.SEPTEMBER, 10, 9, 0)
println("reminder: $reminder")
val monthDay = MonthDay.now()
println("monthDay: $monthDay")
val yearMonth = YearMonth.now()
println("yearMonth: $yearMonth")
val year = Year.now()
println("year: $year")
