An abandoned old project we use at work has not had a commit in over 3 years and over the years I have added improvements to it. Not being a developer by trade I was always hampered by my lack of skills to implement any feature add-ons until recently. Out of the box the web application would output event dates but always in UTC. A month ago I discovered a project called MomentJS which allows you to parse, manipulate and display time mostly how you want.
Check it out here.
But unlike the days of yore I have stackoverflow and Google to guide me without getting lost.
Here is an excellent article by Six Revisions with demos!
