One of the complexities of working with Date and Time in software development is to keep track of the time zone to which the time is referring to. Date and Time are usually stored/sent/received as strings in the typical format:
The problem is that this string does not mention the time zone used.
The Solution => The ECMA / ISO8601 Format.
is a date and time format that provides date, time and it's timezone as a single stirng. ECMA
in the middle means Time
at the end means the timezone is UTC
(These 2 Letters are COMPULSORY
for ECMA Compliance)
