In this session, we will explore some of the limitations and defects of the JavaScript Date class. We will also explore several JavaScript libraries that make date and time issues easier, and will talk about proposed changes to the ECMAScript standards surrounding time zones and internationalization. This session will be pure JavaScript, using Node.js and Browser examples, and should apply equally well to .Net, Python, PHP and Ruby developers. (If you are not familiar with concepts like daylight saving time and time zones, then you should also attend my Date and Time Fundamentals session.)
