In this episode, Dave Slusher, Josh Nerius and Chuck Tomasi examine using Moment.js as a tool for putting some coherence in the Travel Tracker application where every single flight brings in: local time at origin, local time at the destination, instance local time and UTC. These can be and often are four different timezones! Can we use Moment.js to help?
