Shows 20 o'clock for me in Germany. Right?
@Bob K Many in the US don't know their GMT. We refer to the time zone in the US as Eastern, Central, Mountain, or Pacific timezones. So a GMT would mean nothing to most Americans.
That's what I mean with US centric. GMT is the standard, not any US time zone.
And programmers are not normal US citizens. They (should) know the Earth is round (not flat), has time zones, Europe exists, and other languages have characters beyond a-z ;P
Xojo itself has a GMToffset in the date object, not a USEsternTimeOffset: http://docs.xojo.com/index.php/Date.GMTOffset
After all this is supposed to be a world wide virtual group, not a US one. Unless I misunderstood.
When I was in the military and conducting various missions overseas, it was easier to coordinate with others who are not operating in your "time zone" by referencing one specific time zone - "Zulu" (also known as GMT). That way no matter where you are, if you're using Zulu as your reference things can be coordinated anywhere.
Here's a link to a military time zone map:
Videos of both Bob's and Hal's presentations are now available . Due to technical problems (it seems that Zoom and the tvOS Simulator don't play well together), I'll be re-recording my Apple TV demo and will make it available soon.
If you have any questions, feedback, or ideas, please let me know.
