A common requirement in programs is getting the number of seconds, milliseconds, or nanoseconds since the Unix epoch. Here’s how to do it in Go.
package main

import (
    "fmt"
    "time"
)

func main() {

    now := time.Now()
    secs := now.Unix()
    nanos := now.UnixNano()
    fmt.Println(now)

    // Note that there is no UnixMillis, so to get the milliseconds since epoch
    // you'll need to manually divide from nanoseconds.
    millis := nanos / 1000000
    fmt.Println(secs)
    fmt.Println(millis)
    fmt.Println(nanos)

    // You can also convert integer seconds or nanoseconds since the epoch into the corresponding time.
    fmt.Println(time.Unix(secs, 0))
    fmt.Println(time.Unix(0, nanos))
}
package main

import (
    "fmt"
    "time"
)

func main() {
    p := fmt.Println

    // Here's a basic example of formatting a time according to RFC3339,
    // using the corresponding layout constant.
    t := time.Now()
    p(t.Format(time.RFC3339))

    // Layouts must use the reference time Mon Jan 2 15:04:05 MST 2006 to show the pattern
    // with which to format a given time/string.
    p(t.Format("3:04PM"))
    p(t.Format("Mon Jan _2 15:04:05 2006"))
    p(t.Format("2006-01-02T15:04:05.999999-07:00"))

    // For purely numeric representations you can also use standard string formatting
    // with the extracted components of the time value.
    fmt.Printf("%d-%02d-%02dT%02d:%02d:%02d-00:00\n",
        t.Year(), t.Month(), t.Day(),
        t.Hour(), t.Minute(), t.Second())
}
package main

import (
    "fmt"
    "time"
)

func main() {
    p := fmt.Println

    t1, e := time.Parse(
        time.RFC3339,
        "2012-11-01T22:08:41+00:00")
    p(t1)

    form := "3 04 PM"
    t2, e := time.Parse(form, "8 41 PM")
    p(t2)

    // Parse will return an error on malformed input explaining the parsing problem.
    ansic := "Mon Jan _2 15:04:05 2006"
    _, e = time.Parse(ansic, "8:41PM")
    p(e)
}
