What is epoch time?

The Unix epoch (or Unix time or POSIX time or Unix timestamp) is the number of seconds that have elapsed since January 1, 1970 (midnight UTC/GMT), not counting leap seconds (in ISO 8601: 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z).

Literally speaking the epoch is Unix time 0 (midnight 1/1/1970), but "epoch" is often used as a synonym for Unix time.

Some systems store epoch dates as a signed 32-bit integer, which might cause problems on January 19, 2038 when it turns again to 0 (known as the Year 2038 problem or Y2038).
