Tips for working with dates in PHP

Converting from different date format can be challenging. All the php and mysql date functions can be confusing. Just store the date as yearmmdd format, eg 20160220 means year 2016, 02 month and 20 day. This format works well with strtotime function. As per unix timestamp, you can also use basic arithmetic to compare the dates in this format.
