Abstract

Handling dates and times in our applications should be simple but once you throw in time zones, user locales, UTC, support for testing scenarios and calendars it can become anything but easy. In this session, we will look at using the awesome NodaTime library, https://www.nodatime.org/, to take control of DateTime scenarios in our ASP.NET Core web applications. During this adventure, we'll also dive into handling frontend and API serialization issues.
