The past few years I’ve been dabbling with Javascript (not seriously) and decided to take a very large whack at a problem I’d had 2-3 years ago.

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!
