Chapter 7. Dates and Times

JSON doesn't have datatypes for either date or time. Both are represented as strings. Server and client must ensure that date/time strings are in ISO 8601 format. E.g.:

2015-04-19T11:08:53Z
2015-04-10T11:08
2015-04-19

Developers should not assume that the server is in the same time zone as the browser. All timezone-aware expressions should contain time zone offset or "Z" suffix (for "Zulu" time).
