Today I’m virtually delivering a class to IT pros in India, The United Kingdom, and the United States. Time difference can be a bit of an issue. I’m directing time based for the class in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). Of course since this is a PowerShell course, I’m doing this in PowerShell.
Two of the methods provided to us from the .NET framework System.DateTime is ToLocalTime and ToUniversalTime
So let’s say that I need everyone to be back in the virtual classroom in an hour and a half. I can run this command to get the equivalent time in GMT.
Let’s say that the GMT time will be 18:30.
For the class to convert the GMT time to their local time:
(Get-Date –Date “18:30Z”).ToLocalTime()
