Dates and Times in Cocoa

Topic: Date and time APIs are notoriously difficult, even though we all have an intimate understanding of the problem domain. Why is it so hard to get right in an app, yet so easy to reason about? How could Apple screw up alarms around Daylight Savings Time more than once? In this talk, we’ll take a tour of the time and date APIs in Cocoa and Cocoa Touch, solve some common problems, and figure out why things aren’t always as easy as they seem to be.
