I have to google how to display a date in php often, it's normal
Google-fu is an art that programmers require
KasperNS209173dYou should never focus on remembering specific things. Remember ideas and concepts. So you know that it's possible to parse a string to a date, now you just need a quick Google search to find out how.

Before there was google there was docs, and peers. It’s the same thing now just with access to wayyyy more peers. :)
