Time in JavaScript is weird. But why is time so terrible in JavaScript? Why do we need libraries like Moment.js? And what exactly are Greenwich Mean Time and Coordinated Universal Time.

With so much to worry about timing wise: formatting, time zones, internationalization, recurrence rules, leap years, daylight savings time, and more, everyone needs HELP!

Let’s turn time into money by taking a look at the most popular time libraries and how we use them to solve JavaScript’s time problems. We’ll look at how JavaScript’s Date object started and what its prototype allows. We’ll wind our way through dates, times, and standards to find solutions to the weirdness.

Let’s kill time together talking about JavaScript time! Because we know, time heals all.
