The Perl DateTime Project was started at the beginning of 2003 to create a set of interoperable modules covering all aspects of date/time programming.

Since the beginning of the project, several dozen modules have been created including a core date/time object, time zone modules, modules for numerous non-Gregorian calendars, formatting and parsing, and much more.

This presentation will show you how to solve date/time programming problems using modules from DateTime Project. Some of the areas covered will include how to handle data in for date/times in multiple time zones, date/time math, localization, formatting and parsing, set math with date/times, and more.
