Description

Join Seth as he sits down at CodeMash with Maggie Pint, Matt Johnson, and Jon Skeet – three of the best time nerds you will ever meet!  This candid discussion covers several of the common mistakes developers make with dates and times.  If you think you should "always use UTC" then you need to watch this video!  Watch Jon as he demonstrates using his Noda Time library for .NET, and Maggie as she illustrates these concepts in JavaScript with Moment.js.
