I have a web app with an ASP.NET API back-end and React front-end. It also has a mobile app built in React Native.
Question is about date/time values. I have two options in handling time zone conversions and wanted to get some opinions on which is a better approach.
- I can store user's time zone in the database and send all date/time values already converted to user's time zone -- based on the saved time zone data. The advantage of this approach is that the front-end doesn't have to do any work. This is an advantage especially for older smart phones with limited system resources.
