Can anyone share their experience regarding storing and usage of timezones (I know we can use the timestamp with timezone datatype for storing)? As we start storing data from various timezones, we would like to know what the best practices are in this area? Do you store the local time and then an offset and then do the conversion in the presentation layer? Do you store a master list of all states/zip codes with timezones? If so what is the source of this data? How do you handle daylight savings?
Any input will be greatly appreciated.
