Faced a guy who tried to pin, his data not coming up on our app. After debugging I found out he was sending the timestamp as his local time + 'z'(e.g. 2019-06-13T22:38:54.143Z), thinking thats for est and blamed us for why his data is not showing at correct time.

    'Z' equals GMT, right?

    Nope. Not quite right.

    GMT is the older term, it should be UTC. It's bit picky, but while the terms are often used as if they are the same, but they're not.

    The Z stems from Zulu time zone, which ist UTC Offset Zero, so UTC.
