Time plays an essential role in our lives. Therefore, as developers we get to work with date and time quite frequently. Computer software is used by people from anywhere in the world and the time in one region can differ from the time in another region. And, generally in the software we build we capture and process the date and time of various data records and events. Therefore, it's important to understand various nuances around working with date and time.
