Going from a date to a unix time:

>>> from datetime import date
>>> from time import mktime
>>> start = date(2011, 9, 26)
>>> mktime(start.timetuple())

Going from a unix time to a date:

>>> from time import strftime
>>> from datetime import datetime
>>> datetime.fromtimestamp(int("1284101485")).strftime('%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S')
