Previously, I've discussed working with date and time values both server- and client-side, and I've covered storing temporal data in databases. This time, we're going to talk about telling time.
Almost every application needs to work with time: if not for some greater purpose like expiring access credentials, entities usually store information about when they were created or generally when something happened. Telling time is indeed a crucial responsibility, and being able to rely on the mechanism across the whole codebase is really important. But it can get problematic.
