A DateTime object is a point in time. The time zone is either UTC or the local time zone. Accurate date-time handling is required in almost every data context. Dart has the marvelous built-in classes DateTime and Duration in dart:core.Some of its uses are:
- Compare and calculate with date times
- Get every part of a date-time
- Work with different time zones
- Measure time spans

The millisecondsSinceEpoch property of a date returns the number of milliseconds since the “Unix epoch”—January 1, 1970, UTC.
The Duration class can be used to calculate the difference between two dates and to move date forward or backward.
