When storing dates and times in databases is it better to store them as
UNIX timestamps or in one of the SQL date/time types?
I am working on an application that takes school attendance and has
homework assignments, so I am doing a fair amount of date work.
Currently I am storing everything as date time and referring to a day
with the UNIX timestamp for midnight of that day. I am able to do
everything I need to do with both formats, but I am wondering if there
is a performance issue at hand.
Thanks for any replies.
