The “right” JSON Date Format
JSON is prominent for its prevalent serialization format. For Web-based applications, it’s become the serialization format. The problem with dates in JSON is that it does not specify date representation.
The date is represented in a standard and sortable format that represents a UTC time.
ISO 8601 Format
ISO 8601 Format (International Organization for Standardization) is an international standard that covers the exchange of date and time-related data. This standard provides a well-defined method of representing dates and times, so as to avoid misinterpretation of numeric representations of dates and times.
