Do you know what time it is? Well, you could ask a computer -- but if you're using JS, you may not get the right answer.
In this talk, we'll explore the common gotchas around times and dates in JS (and with computing in general). Along the way, we'll tell you what a calendar is (it's more complicated than you might think!), cover the subtle but critically important distinctions between time zones and time offsets, and hopefully allow you to remain sane the next time you look at a calendar.
