Objective Corporation - Palmerston North Office, 17 - 23 Victoria Avenue, Palmerston North

We take dates and time for granted but it isn’t until we start peeking under the curtains to find its horrors. Many are spared this fate but as developers, our fate is different, we’re sent into the mines with nothing more than a tattered piece of paper scribbled with “ISO 8601”, “UTC”, and other text pleading for sanity. Join us to learn some interesting titbits on date/time concepts, how date/time impacts our world and processes (distributed computing especially), and basics steps that can help us maintain our sanity as coders building the tools bound by it.
